World’s Perspective

Face the Conversation

by Diane Meyer

The AHA Annual Meeting provides a valuable setting to collaborate and share ideas.

Diane Meyer is the editor of Hereford World. She can be reached at dmeyer@hereford.org.

The American Hereford Association (AHA) staff is planning for the National Western Stock Show (Page 74) and other events, but the editorial and communication teams have been living and breathing Annual Meeting coverage for the last few weeks. This Hereford World issue is filled with highlights of the AHA Annual Membership Meeting and Conference, which drew an impressive crowd from across the country for a weekend of collaboration (Page 37). This event is packed with comradery — not only do we get to catch up with friends but we also get to make new friendships. The interaction between AHA members, staff and industry partners is crucial to strengthen Team Hereford.

The sustainability in the beef industry presentation (Page 39), shared how faceto-face conversations are more effective than conversations on social media when discussing beef’s impact on the environment. It was stated, our passion comes out in face-to-face conversations. Listeners are less likely to view you as a “terrible person.” The Annual Meeting provides an opportunity to have meaningful and respectful conversations and opens the door to new ideas. I encourage those considering attending this event in the future to make the trip and be a part of these valuable conversations. May your holiday season be bright and your smile brighter.

We recently hosted the Annual Membership Meeting and Conference during the American Royal, and it was another great event. The American Hereford Association (AHA) staff deserves a lot of credit for putting together the event, which consisted of informative educational seminars, an incredible awards reception, a great annual meeting, and a strong sale and show. Friday’s educational component was well attended and the topics covered were well received with plenty of excellent questions and comments. Sarah Place, Ph.D., started off the educational forum with a great presentation on the sustainability of the beef industry. She shared the U.S. has made significant improvements in genetics, management and efficiencies, and outlined key points in favor of beef’s positive effects on the environment. Leoma Wells, GeneSeek, outlined the benefits of genomically testing cattle and applauded the membership for utiziling genetic improvement tools. Brian Bertelsen, U.S. Premium Beef, touched on value-added and grid premium programs offered to the cattle feeders. Mark Core, Vermeer, concluded the educational sessions by expanding on topics presented at “The Brand” Marketing Summit. The awards reception is always a highlight of the weekend. During the evening, we honor some of the most talented junior members with scholarships. In the midst of the event, I had a parent of one of the scholarship winners inform me that without the help of these scholarships, her daughter would not have been able to attend the college of her choice, nor study the curriculum of her choice. It certainly is critical we continue to support these talented juniors. As well, the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) Fed Steer Shootout continues to evolve, and with the support of the folks at BioZyme

Inc., we have added some additional educational components to the program. Another exciting element of the awards night is honoring our 50-year Golden Breeders and listening to the history of their programs. Unique to this year, the AHA also honored the Olsen and Stahly ranches, as they have been involved in the National Reference Sire Program since the evaluation’s inception 20 years ago. We also recognized our valued partners of the Certified Hereford Beef® program who diligently promote the brand every year. Certainly, the highlight of the evening’s reception is to honor the Hall of Fame and Merit inductees. It was great to see the families recognized on stage accepting their awards and to hear their stories and the commitment these families have to the Hereford breed. A huge thank-you needs to go out to the nominating committee for putting together another very strong slate of Board candidates, and we thank all of the voting delegates for attending and electing a new set of Board directors. The weekend concluded with a great Hereford show and sale and the naming of our new National Hereford Queen — congratulations to Melanie Fishel, N.C., and to all of the queen candidates. I would like to wish all of you a merry Christmas, and may God bless you and your family.

Performance Matters

Validating Our Strengths

by Shane Bedwell

Simplot continues to increase its use of Hereford genetics while adding value to the breed. When I wrote last month’s column, we had a stretch of “normal” fall weather, and I certainly bragged about the nice weather. Little did I know fall would be short lived and the weather would turn so cold, so soon. My conclusion is the crazy weather is about par for the course with how crazy 2019 has been — and maybe I should stick to talking about Hereford business. The good news is 2019 is on the short rows, and I have a great cup of cheer to share with you going into 2020. The National Reference Sire Program (NRSP) continues to be a strong catalyst for proving the value of Hereford genetics and for strengthening the American Hereford Association’s genetic evaluation. Below are the results of the 2018-born calves at Simplot Livestock Co. in Grand View, Idaho. The 2018 calf crop marks 10 years Simplot has been involved with the NRSP, and the increased use of

Shane Bedwell is the chief operating officer and director of breed improvement of the American Hereford Association. He can be reached at sbedwell@hereford.org.

Hereford genetics in the entire Simplot cow herd is a strong testament to the breed and breeders. The data set below show many of the core strengths of the breed when used in a commercial setting. Through artificial insemination, the four sires listed in Table 1 were used on predominantly black commercial heifers. Phenotypes on those progeny were collected from birth to harvest, including feed intake data. Table 2 displays the expected progeny differences (EPDs) for the sires used and reflects the 2018 calf crop phenotypes. As a group the steers graded 97% Choice, 74% upper 2/3 Choice and 7% Prime with a 920-pound carcass weight average. This group of cattle was fed a little longer, but they still converted at a 5.7:1 feed:gain (F:G) ratio, which further validates the efficiency of the breed. Merry Christmas!

All proceeds from Lot 1 go to the Hereford Youth Foundation of America in support of the Growing a Lasting Legacy campaign and supporting leadership and education for Hereford youth. This year’s female was selected through an online “People’s Choice” voting opportunity that started at the 2019 VitaFerm® Junior Hereford National Expo and wrapped up at the American Hereford Association’s Annual Membership Meeting and Conference. New Mexico Lady is a March 7, 2018, daughter of NJW 79Z 22Z Mighty 49C ET and out of C&M KTP New Mexico Lady 4006. “The American Hereford Association’s junior program is second to none, and it is amazing to see how it has increased in size

and developed its benefits for young adults,” says Kyle Pérez of Pérez Cattle Co. “The program raised my brother and myself, and we are looking forward to watching our children grow up through it as well. It’s an honor to be able to give back to the program with the donation of the Lot 1 female. This bred heifer represents the quality, type, and kind of female that we feel is the ideal Hereford cow and we are proud to have built a strong foundation around functional females just like her.”

Spring Inventory Reminder

by Laura Loschke

Spring 2020 herd inventories have been generated for Whole Herd Total Performance Record (TPR™) members. Check your mail or MyHerd account for your herd inventory, and remember to turn it in by Jan. 15 to receive a $0.25 per-head discount on every female maintained on the inventory. Inventories turned in between Jan. 16 and March 1 will be charged the normal $5.50 per cow, $3.00 per first-time heifer and $1.50 per bull (optional). Any inventories turned in after March 1 will incur the $2 per-head surcharge. Any dam whose offspring you intend to register and record weaning performance data on through the Whole Herd TPR program must be listed on the current inventory.

How to complete your inventory

• Review each animal on the list

and assign a herd ID (if one is not already assigned) to each animal maintained on the inventory. • Report disposal information for animals no longer active in your herd. Make sure these animals are no longer in your herd — there is a $30 reinstatement fee to reactivate an animal which has been disposed for more than six months.

• Keep multiply owned

to calve in the following calving season (fall 2020 in this instance).

• Report the inventory status

“Non-Exposed” for any firsttime heifers you wish to keep in your inventory that have not been exposed to breeding conditions yet.

• Add any additional animals at

the end. Provide a registration number and a herd ID for each new animal. Laura Loschke is the records supervisor and education and information service coordinator of the American Hereford Association. She can be reached at lloschke@hereford.org.

• Keep donor dams on

Youth Movement

Motivation Going Forward

by Brooklyn Adam

October is one of the most exciting and busy months of the year for the American Hereford Association (AHA), as many important decisions are made and valuable information is shared at the AHA Annual Membership Meeting and Conference, held in Kansas City, Mo. Both the conference and the membership meeting are full of viable information all AHA members should heed. For those who are new to the breed or who simply want to know the trends in the industry or updates within the Hereford breed, the Annual Meeting is the place to go. With industry professionals, farmers and ranchers from across the country and companies which want breeders to succeed, attendees are sure to find new and exciting information to take home to their herd.

Wrapping it up The powerful theme this year was “Leading Through Innovation.” With that, the AHA hopes attendees took away some valuable information on new statistics, new ideas and new technologies to become a more innovative breed. The four educational sessions prompted excellent conversations on how Team Hereford can continue to lead through innovation. Sara Place, Ph.D.;Leoma Wells; Brian Bertelsen; and Mark Core were the session speakers and exceeded all expectations. Their topics covered a wide range of issues, controversies and conversations, such as misinformation regarding beef’s greenhouse gas emissions. Not only is the Annual Meeting important for our adult breeders to attend, but it is especially important and valuable for juniors involved in the breed. This event is an excellent opportunity for juniors to get their hands wet and to meet the people who represent our breed. This is a place for ideas to be shared and for information to be absorbed. It is an excellent opportunity for the seasoned breeders to share their knowledge with Hereford juniors. A large amount of work goes into planning this event to make it special for everyone in attendance. The Hereford Honorees awards ceremony is a highlight of the weekend, where outstanding members from the AHA and the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) are recognized. Our scholarship program, in conjunction with the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA), is by far the most successful and recognized program in the Hereford industry, and this year 26 Hereford youth received more than $180,000 in scholarships from HYFA.

After the conference and membership meeting, the National Hereford Show begins on Saturday and concludes on Sunday afternoon with the selection of the National Hereford Queen. What began in 1899 as the National Hereford Show, the first nationwide show for the exposition and sale of purebred cattle, has forever been special for our breed. The history of our breed and Kansas City brings breeders together from around the country to showcase the livestock with which they work so hard through the year. Although weather and farm responsibilities affected our numbers this year, the quality of the Hereford cattle at the 2019 American Royal did not fall short. Breeders and junior showmen brought their A-game and showed up to win. We owe a big thank-you to Jirl Buck, Okla., and Jack Oattes, Canada, for sorting the Hereford cattle. The “crown-topping” on the ice cream which wraps up the American Royal for the NJHA is the selection of the National Hereford Queen. This year’s winner is the one and only Melanie Fishel, of Kernersville, N.C. As last year’s runner-up for the contest, she is now the lady in white representing the powerful and strong women of our breed. She began her reign as the National Hereford Queen Sunday, Oct. 27, and will be the face for many young women to look up to during her year as queen. The NJHA would like to congratulate and thank the award winners, conference attendees and Hereford enthusiasts who made our week in Kansas City unforgettable. We could not do it without you!

Dreams Come True — One Scholarship at a Time

Foundation’s Focus by Amy Cowan

The Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) has a lot to celebrate as we close the books on a very solid fiscal year 2019 and look ahead to 2020. This year, HYFA reached an all-time high in net assets of $4,272,546, but perhaps the biggest headline is the story line that reads more than $320,000 was given back to junior members through scholarship, education and leadership programs. Donors and friends, this is an exciting time for the foundation, and Hereford youth are reaping the benefits of your commitment and dedication to helping them pursue their passions. I am the lucky one as I got to stand on stage at the Hereford Honorees awards ceremony in Kansas City, Mo., as $180,000 in scholarships were awarded to Hereford youth to assist with their college educations and, in some cases, made the dream of attending college and pursuing a degree a reality. 2019 marked the first year for the Merry Family and MGM Memorial Scholarship. This particular scholarship fund happened because of a vision the late Gordon and Marion Merry

had to reward juniors who are passionate about Hereford cattle. The MGM scholarship fund was put in place to assist a college student with the dream of one day becoming a veterinarian. I cannot think of anyone more deserving of the honor of being the inaugural MGM Memorial Scholarship recipient than Ceara Cull from Wisconsin. Best of luck to Ceara and the entire roster of HYFA scholarship winners who were recognized in Kansas City. Please turn to Page 53 to learn about all of this year’s scholarship recipients. Not only do I consider myself lucky because I got to help recognize 26 Hereford youth for their scholastic achievement but I get to work with them throughout their entire journey through the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA). I can truly see the difference HYFA’s mission is making in our young people. This week, I had the opportunity to write a letter of recommendation for an NJHA member applying for a college scholarship. The basis of the letter was what sets this student apart from his or her peers in the areas of leadership and community

involvement. In this particular case, I remember this individual walking into the Hereford showring for the first time when he was just 7 years old. Since then, I have watched him grow and have watched him take advantage of the many opportunities our junior organization has provided him to mature as a young leader and to prepare for his college career. This letter of recommendation became a very easy one to write because I have seen firsthand how HYFA has made a difference in this young man’s life. This NJHA member is very passionate when it comes to the Hereford breed, having seen much success in the showring. With that said, he has taken his Hereford involvement outside the showring and has been very involved in our Faces of Leadership Conference and leadership activities at the Junior National Hereford Expo. I truly believe Faces of Leadership helped him step out of his comfort zone, made him more confident, improved his communication skills and helped him believe he can go on to be a leader in this industry that raised him. This is what it is all about, helping the next generation put their future plans in motion by giving them the tools to be the best leaders they can be. Thank you, one and all, for helping make dreams come true for these deserving members of team NJHA. During this holiday season and every day, HYFA is so very thankful for our generous donors and contributors who help us fulfill our mission of scholarship, education and leadership. Amy Cowan is the American Hereford Association’s director of youth activities and foundation. She can be reached at acowan@hereford.org.

Hereford Women

NHW Gears Up for 2020

by Erin Lockhart

Each year in Kansas City, Mo., the American Hereford Association (AHA) has its Annual Membership Meeting and Conference in conjunction with the American Royal. The National Hereford Women (NHW) also host their annual meeting during this time. The NHW has been hard at work all year and was able to report back to its membership all the goals that were reached and surpassed in 2019.

Milestone achieved First, last year the NHW set out to fully fund the National Queen Scholarship at $200,000, which means a total of $10,000 in scholarships would be award to the National Hereford Queen. Throughout the year, NHW members charged ahead and through many fundraisers we are happy to announce we successfully reached our goal! Thank you to all those who helped us reach this goal — we truly could not have done it without assistance from our membership and other Hereford enthusiasts.

OFFICERS AND COMMITTEE CHAIRS President – Sharon King, Columbia, Miss. President elect – Dana Pieper, Zurich, Kan. Vice president – Shannon Worrell, Mason, Texas Secretary – Amy Taylor, Munford, Ky. Treasurer – Nikki Rogers, Eatonville, Wash. 33025 Webster Rd. E, Eatonville, WA 98328 Historian – Nikki Rogers, Eatonville, Wash. Communications – Erin Lockhart, Bryan, Texas (ex officio) DIRECTORS Erika Evoniuk, Dayton, Ohio Bonnie Reed, Hampton, Minn. Betsy Pitstick, S. Solon, Ohio Bridget Beran, Claflin, Kan.

New board elected Next, the NHW board welcomed three new board members while saying goodbye to three retiring board members. Please welcome Kathy Bryan, Callea Breiner and Bridget Beran. These three ladies will dedicate their time, energy and resources to help the NHW continue its support of the Hereford breed and its youth for the next four years. We would also like to welcome Erika Evounik, Sandra Ostagaard’s daughter, who will serve out her mother’s board seat. A special thanks goes to Rhonda Eck (who spent five years on the board), Trudy Nolles and Karen Smith for their dedicated service to the NHW, and we look forward to their continued support. The NHW proudly announces this year’s nomination committee. From the Northwest we have Michelle Beran, Betsy Beck from the Northeast, Suzanne Matheny from the Southeast and Kathy Buchholz from the Southwest.

NHW Woman of the Year During our meeting, the NHW Woman of the Year was awarded. This woman was very close to the hearts of all the NHW board this year. Sandra “Sandy” Ostagaard, an NHW board member, passed away this year shortly after our

spring board meeting. Nominated by the Ohio Hereford Women Association, Sandy was named NHW Woman of the year. She was loved by everyone and touched any life in a positive way. Sandy’s family was with us at the board meeting to accept this award in her honor.

National Hereford Queen With help from the recently retired National Hereford Queen, Miss Emily Meinhardt, we spent three long days interviewing and testing nine young ladies competing for the National Hereford Queen title. Miss Melanie Fishel, from North Carolina, was named the 2019-20 National Hereford Queen. Melanie will represent the NHW, the AHA and the Hereford breed at state and national Hereford shows for the next year. Congratulations to Melanie!

Passing the Test of Time

Larson Hereford Farm proves time is no match for the Larson family’s dedication to their farm and the Hereford breed. by Brooke Roberts

T

his story began more than 145 years ago, when a young man with an entrepreneurial spirit sailed across the Atlantic Ocean from Norway, recruited for the skills his Scandinavian heritage offered to large U.S. lumber companies. In 1876, Esten Larson purchased a farm in the rolling, rocky hills of northwest Wisconsin. To this day his logging equipment, genetics from his son’s original purchase of Hereford cattle and, most importantly, his family members still reside at the Larson Hereford Farm in Spring Valley, Wis.

| December 2019

Today, Fred Larson, his wife, Lori, and sons, Justin (35) and Easten (33), share the story of the growth and development of their family’s operation right alongside the Hereford breed itself. “The story goes that my grandpa had taken the family out on a trip out West, and they stopped at a café to eat,” says Fred Larson, the 58-year-old great-grandson of Esten Larson. “At this café, my grandfather found out there was going to be this sale. It had been a bad, dry year and some ranch was selling out, and they went to the sale and ended up Hereford.org


buying a train car full of cows and they shipped them back here. So that was the original purchase of registered Hereford females.”

The early chapters Larson’s first memories in the showring began in 1970 when he exhibited his first “Every cattle breeder out there is just trying to make their cattle better,” Larson says. “I think the industry 4-H steer, a Hereford calf has done a great job.” That effort to make better cattle has resulted in drastic phenotypic changes in the weighing in at 973 pounds.

The reason the pendulum continuously seems But then the tide turned. to shift away from extremes in the cattle business “All of a sudden, the extreme things started is the negative consequences which always become showing up,” Larson explains. “The term ‘exotic’ evident over time. sounds really dated, but the exotic breeds are The Larsons found structural soundness to what came in and took hold.” be imperative to the longevity of large-framed, One-thousand-pound Hereford steers were no heavyweight cattle, not to mention the fertility longer purple-ribbon cattle. Larson says that era challenges which accompanied these massive proved difficult for Hereford breeders looking to cattle. Larson was relieved to notice cattle began market bulls, and the cattleman’s brows furrow when to moderate in the mid to late ’90s, and from he thinks of how the breed was perceived at the time. “People would look down their noses at continued on page 28... Herefords — old-fashioned, out-of-date — and ask what you would want Herefords for,” he says. “That always annoyed me, and I know it bothered a lot of other people, too.” Larson credits his father for guiding his family and their herd through the tough times. “His experience, work ethic and faith taught me how to deal with diversity,” Larson explains. Those who have been grounded in the cattle business for as long as the Larson family learn that trends never stay the same for long.

The pendulum swings The perception and phenotypic traits of Hereford cattle have varied immensely in the last century, and the Larsons’ herd is a prime example. “We went through that kind of moderate-tosmall range, and then they were super big and Hereford.org

The Larsons enjoy showing cattle and the camaraderie that results, but their primary focus is on production females and herd bulls. December 2019 |

that transition and growth, the seasoned cattleman is pleased with where the industry currently stands. “To me, right now I think cattle are more in tune with the commercial industry than they have been for a while,” he says. The Larsons’ farm, like many others in Wisconsin, also included a small herd of Holstein cows that provided a bimonthly milk check as a contribution to the farm’s income alongside the cow herd. In 2003, the dairy cows were sold due to a labor shortage and a desire to expand the Hereford herd. The decision was made to expand the cow herd to approximately 200 cows, and 48 bred heifers were purchased from the late Ray Johnson of Lake Bronson, Minn. “They were some very, very good females. They had lots of longevity, which I really appreciated about them,” Larson says. “It gave us a little influx of some new genetics and we could go some different directions with them.”

Practical and problem-free Especially pleasing to Larson, and Hereford breeders across the country, is the increasing recognition of the value of Hereford genetics in the commercial cattle business. “We’ve been selling more and more bulls into black cow herds,” Larson explains. “I feel like the American Hereford Association’s advertising campaign on the baldy is paying off here.” Outside of the occasional sale consignment, the Larsons sell approximately 45 bulls private treaty off the farm each year. The farm also routinely exhibits a pen of Hereford bulls at Denver in order to connect with breeders across the country. In 2019, Larson Hereford Farm exhibited the Champion Yearling Pen of 3, marking the family’s first division win in their 20 years of exhibiting at the National Western Stock Show.

To me, right now I think cattle are more in tune with the commercial industry than they have been for a while. — Fred Larson “People pretty soon start to remember you out there,” he explains. “They come and say ‘I remember that pen of bulls you had out here three or four years ago, I really liked them’ — that has opened up a lot of doors for us.” Whether on-farm or at Denver, customer service is of utmost importance to the success of Larson’s marketing efforts. Detailed records are kept of customers and their purchases, and Larson utilizes those records to guide his customers in future purchases. “We try and take really good care of our customers,” he says. “We are at the point now where probably half of my buyers just call me and say, ‘I need a bull, you know what I like.’ It’s gratifying to me that people trust us.” With the transition into the digital age, marketing their sale cattle has become a much more efficient process. Pedigrees and performance data — the Larsons have collected the latter since the ’60s — on all sale bulls are posted on the farm’s website for customers to view. The Larsons also utilize a Facebook page to aid in promoting their cattle, replacing previous consignment ads run in state agricultural publications. “I’m always amazed that it used to be people would come and we would have to walk through all 40 or 45 bulls and now I get a lot of people that come over and they have looked at the website,” Larson says. “They will have three or four bulls they want to look at and they might catch another one out of the corner of their eye, but it makes it much easier that way.” When selling bulls, Larson finds confidence in selling sons of the older, proven cows in his herd.

Larson uses AI sires as a starting point for purchasing herd bulls. “I’ll get some semen on a bull I like for whatever reason and if we get the kind of calves I’m happy with, we’ll go out and find a really good son of that bull and put them to work as a herd bull,” he explains.

The top 40% of male calves are kept as bulls, and the rest run in the feedlot until they are harvested and marketed locally.

“When I go to buy a bull, we concentrate on their mother every bit as much as the bull himself,” he explains. “I think that’s a good philosophy to have in selling bulls. If I’ve got a 10-, 11- or 12-year-old cow that does not have an issue, boy it is really easy to sell those bulls.” Larson acknowledges changes on the farm helped dictate their decisions moving forward. A feedlot was added to get steers fed to market weight more efficiently, and artificial insemination and embryo transfer (ET) work are also utilized. “I think the first ET we did, the guy came into the kitchen in our house in ’83,” Larson says. “He dumped all that stuff right on my kitchen counter, right on my frying pan!” Lori adds. The Larsons do not routinely flush cows but, instead, choose to capitalize when ‘the right cow’ comes along. “A lot of times, that’s a cow that’s getting up there in years,” Larson says. “She has proven to me she is one of those problem-free cows that has high production capabilities and something to offer not just us, but the breed.”

The common thread: good people Trends in the industry shift. The popularity of each breed ebbs and flows. The markets rise and fall. But through everything, the constant factor has been the presence of good people in the lives of the Larson family. Through years of selling stock, showing and representing the membership, both Fred and Lori have met amazing Hereford breeders they now consider close friends. Outside of the people they have met through the Hereford business, the Larson family itself gives a heartbeat to the operation. The third, fourth and fifth generations of the family all contribute to the farm today. Thanks to input from Lori, Larson describes their decision-making process as double-layered. “I appreciate my wife’s contribution to things,” Larson says. “She is not a farm girl and has Hereford.org

educated herself very much on the cattle and I trust her judgment quite a bit on things.” Larson says he likes to give Lori a hard time about one bull-buying trip in particular, when a young prospect that was a bit rough-around-theedges caught Fred’s eye. “When I first saw him, I was ready to buy him on the spot and Lori said, ‘What do you like about that calf?’” Larson says. The calf was named Voodoo, and he went on to be calf champion and senior champion at Denver. “That was the bull that kind of put us on the map,” Larson explains. “So, I like to give her a hard time about that.” Aside from the good-hearted jokes, there is no doubt Fred and Lori Larson have a relationship made strong through the years of working cattle and raising their two sons on the farm. Easten works for a custom-harvest operation and currently manages the farm’s approximately 1,500 acres of crop land and machinery, houses the fall calving-herd, and regularly assists his parents with the day-to-day management of the cattle and the farm. Older brother Justin works in the Twin Cities but still assists in taking promotional pictures of the cattle and farm. Larson’s parents, Jerry and Joyce, live on the farm in the house where they raised their family. “My dad, he’s 81, and he is still the first guy up in the morning around here,” Larson says. “But we all try to talk about bigger decisions and where we are headed as much as we can.” Commitment to family and to collaboration has made the Larson Hereford Farm withstand more than a century of changes in the Larsons’ family, their land and their cattle. The test of time can be the most difficult obstacle a family farm can face. It takes grit, determination and a downright love for the land, family and livestock. But the Larson family knows all that, because their farm passed the test of time many years ago.

Hereford cattle and their farm in northwest Wisconsin runs in the Larson family’s blood. “Through the generations, there’s always been someone in the pipeline, so to speak, coming down the road for the farm.” December 2019 |

Hereford Drive

In the flash of a moment, a semi caused a chain-reaction accident, drastically altering two Indiana families’ 2019 JNHE experience.

Blessings from the Wreckage

Two Indiana Hereford families faced the greatest fear of any show family, yet through the trauma arose incredible blessings. by Christy Couch Lee

O

ne moment they were westbound on Interstate 70, less than an hour left on their 16-plus hour journey to the 2019 Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE) in Denver. The sun was shining, excitement filled the cabs of their trucks and the peaks of the Rockies were slowly coming into focus. And one instant changed it all. Dave and Lisa Dixon, Rensselaer, Ind., and their three children — Luke (16), Libby (14), Eli (11) — and Rob and Kristie McFatridge, Otterbein, Ind., and their two children — Kylie (19) and Logan (17) — found themselves in the most fearful situation of any long haul — an accident involving their trucks and trailers, cattle and families. It is the last thing anyone in the show cattle world ever hopes to experience. Despite the

32

| December 2019

horrific scene, a renewed faith in people arose from the wreckage — and most definitely a faith in Hereford people.

The journey The Dixons began a small herd of Hereford cattle in the mid-2000s, when the children began showing. They now participate in local and state shows and the JNHE each year. The McFatridges have been involved in the Hereford industry for many years. Rob has raised Herefords since his 4-H years, and the couple now raises Herefords, as well as club calves, steers and heifers. Kylie and Logan have shown at the JNHE since 2010, as well as at many local and state shows throughout Indiana. Kristie has also served for five years as an Indiana Junior Hereford Association advisor. Hereford.org


In case of a truck or trailer problem, and simply for safety, the Dixon and McFatridge families decided to travel to the 2019 JNHE together and left for Denver at midnight Friday, July 5. Dave Dixon says the long trip was not necessarily an exciting prospect. “I was dreading the trip, as it was going to be 16-20 hours on the road,” Dave says. “But it was actually going really well. One of the reasons we show is that we have the whole family in the truck, and we have those hours together that we don’t get anywhere else. We were really enjoying it.” Kristie says they made great time and were driving carefully. The trip was going well and the midafternoon sun was shining. It was smooth sailing until they were about 50 miles east of Denver. That is when the trip took a turn for the worse. The McFatridges were leading when the two vehicles approached stopped traffic on the interstate. Dave says they had just come to a stop when the accident happened. “We had just gotten stopped, and about that time we felt an impact from the rear. That’s when we realized we had been hit, and our junior nationals were going to change a little bit,” he says. “Then, we got hit again. It pushed our rig into the back of the McFatridges’ trailer, and it was a chain reaction from there.” Kristie will never forget that moment. “We weren’t sitting long, and we heard a huge ‘boom,’” she recalls. “I closed my eyes and said, ‘No, no no.’ Rob looked back and saw an explosion of stuff flying through the air — like a scene from a movie.” A semi failed to stop. The semi hit an RV which then was pushed into the Dixon rig which then was pushed into the McFatridges’ truck and trailer. “After the impact, I looked over and saw the RV driver in his vehicle, right outside my window,” Kristie says. “Miraculously, our daughter was able to get unbuckled and hopped into our son’s seat, just before the RV hit her door.” As with many families on cross-country show trips, the McFatridge passengers were in their socks — comfortable and enjoying the ride. “We ran out onto the interstate in our socks to check on the animals right away,” she recalls. “All of our doors had been jammed in, but the animals were standing. There were bloody noses, but they were all alive.” Immediately, the McFatridges ran back to the Dixons. “All of their airbags had deployed,” Kristie says. “Dave was a bit out of sorts, and we helped him out of the truck. His daughter, Libby, ran to me and I gave her a big hug. We couldn’t see Lisa, so one of us ran to make sure she was okay. And when we found her, Libby ran to her.” It was bad. But, Dave says, it could have been worse. “We are thankful our trailer stayed hooked up,” he notes. “Our trailer looked like a pop can had been split wide open. The nose broke off the trailer, but the Hereford.org

An RV came within inches of the McFatridge family’s cab. Both involved families say they are extremely thankful things weren’t worse.

Dave Dixon says their family’s trailer “looked like a pop can had been split wide open” following the accident. Two of their three heifers were standing and relatively unharmed. The third had to be put down on the interstate. This view is from the rear of what was once the Dixon rig.

trailer didn’t pop loose from the ball. It came within about an inch or two from the cab, where the kids were. But we were all okay. We feel very fortunate.” Incredibly, only one heifer was critically injured in the accident. “We had three head, one per kid,” Dave says. “I really didn’t want to walk to the back of the trailer, because I knew it couldn’t have been good. But when we walked back, two heifers were just standing there. The heifer at the back of the trailer broke her femur and it couldn’t be repaired. She had to be put down on the interstate.”

The aftermath Soon after the impact, the emergency responders arrived. The accident had closed down the interstate continued on page 34... December 2019 |

The chain-reaction accident left Logan McFatridge (l) and Libby Dixon (r) and their families in a state of shock. Both rigs were totaled following the collision, but no people were injured.

which many other Hereford families were traveling to the JNHE. “I began to get texts saying, ‘If we can get to you, we can help you,’” Dave says. Within minutes of the accident, friends within the Hereford family were jumping into action. Families stopped to offer any open trailer space for the families’ tack. A showbox here. A chute there. “They would say, ‘We have room for one heifer.’ ‘We can take some tack.’ And we unpacked those trailers we had carefully packed, and just handed off items — not knowing who was even taking them,” she says. “The firemen had to remove the back door of the trailer, because we couldn’t get the cattle out through the slider door. It was too jammed. The cattle were too scared to come off the trailer, initially. But we got them off, and then walked them on the interstate, through wreckage, to get them to trailers of folks who had room for them.” And the most incredible part? To this day, the Dixons and McFatridges still do not know everyone who helped. People just stepped up and did it — without acknowledgement, without praise. Still to this day, Dave does not know who hauled his cattle. “I realized at one point that our heifers were gone, the police had led them to a trailer up the line,” he says. “Dale Kottkamp had been rerouted around the scene and texted me from Denver. Our heifers were in tie-outs and were fed and watered. Somehow they had gotten there, and someone had taken care of them. To this day, I don’t have any idea who did it.” In fact, the Dixons even sent Libby with a family they did not know until that moment. “The Reeds of Ohio had room for Libby, and we sent her to help unload tack and keep things sorted out as well as she could,” Dave says. “I was telling my pastor about this later, and he laughed and said, ‘If you think about it, you sent your daughter with a complete stranger on the interstate.’ But we didn’t consider them strangers. They had Hereford cattle on board, so we knew they were good to go.” The McFatridges did the same.

| December 2019

“We knew our truck wasn’t drivable, so we sent Logan with a family from Oklahoma who offered to help. We didn’t know them before that time, but it was the Jamison family,” McFatridge says. “They came up to us and said, laughing, ‘You’re those good Hereford Bowl kids from Indiana, aren’t you? We aren’t sure we want to help you, you’re our competition!’ But they did, and they were wonderful. They kept Logan laughing on that drive and kept his mind off of the situation. Libby and her heifer also caught a ride with another great family.” McFatridge says the Ferguson family from Missouri and the Trowbridge family from Kentucky were also early on the scene and offered to help in any way they could. Once the cattle and tack were again on their way to Denver, the Dixons and McFatridges were left alongside the interstate with two totaled rigs. The police could not transport the families, so Joe Rickabaugh, American Hereford Association director of seedstock marketing, stepped in. He drove his vehicle from Denver to pick up the families and then offered it for them to use throughout the week.

To show or not to show After evaluation, the Dixons decided their cattle and the kids were not in shape to show. Kyle Schrader offered to haul the heifers to Magness Land and Cattle in Colorado for the week, where Austin Gotschalk cared for them. After the JNHE ended, Schrader hauled the Dixons’ cattle to Jeff Cook’s farm, and Cook hauled the cattle back to the Dixons’ place in Indiana. After much discussion and deliberation, the McFatridges decided to stay for the week of the JNHE. “The night of the accident, Rob got a call,” Kristie says. “Joe Carlson with Carlson Cattle Co. in Royal Center, Ind., was sending a chiropractor to work on our heifers all week. Rob was overwhelmed with gratefulness and teared up. He never cries. That chiropractor worked on the heifers every day and didn’t charge us. We told the kids not to expect the placing we were hoping for — the animals were still sore. But we were just thankful to be there, period.” Kristie says the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) board of directors greeted them when they arrived and checked in on the family throughout the week. Sullivan Supply also stepped in that week. Taylor Harrison, Stock Show University manager, enlisted the help of Brownstown, Ind., Hereford exhibitor Payton Farmer to select the supplies the families could use for the week. Harrison says the experience, as unfortunate as it was, also was a great example of how the Hereford industry rallies in times of need. “We are here for each other, and the Hereford breed is especially close knit,” she says. “It doesn’t matter where you place or how good your animals Hereford.org


are. Everyone is there for each other, and that’s the best thing about the show industry. “Sullivan Supply cares about the families and the youth of the industry — that’s why Sullivan Supply exists,” she continues. “We are here for the families in every way we can be.” For Farmer the outpouring of support for the families was not out of the ordinary. “I think it’s really cool that Sullivan took the time to help these families, and they covered every aspect with fans, soap, brushes and the necessities,” she says. “I’m not really surprised how the Hereford industry rallied around the Dixons and McFatridges, though. Even though we are competing against each other, we are all family.” When it was time to head eastbound, the McFatridge family rented an SUV, and Aaron Glascock of West Virginia hauled their cattle home. “No one would take any money or accept any payment,” Dave says. “Our cattle and our equipment just showed up at our doorstep. It truly was amazing. There are times when we think, ‘Why do we show? We don’t have to do it. And we don’t make a living from it.’ But that’s why. We are connected to a wonderful group of people. I’m very sad it happened. But maybe I needed it. It has restored my faith.”

Leading Through Innovation Hereford breeders and industry partners gathered in Kansas City to discuss and celebrate innovation in the industry.

A

merican Hereford Association (AHA) members, breeders, partners and staff gathered in Kansas City, Mo., Oct. 25-27 to reflect on the innovate approach taken in various AHA departments during fiscal year (FY) 2019. A crowd of more than 500 took to the Sheraton Kansas City at Crown Center Friday morning and spent time browsing the industry trade show, viewing the latest merchandise at ShopHereford and asking questions at the Hereford Helpline station. Throughout the day, attendees sat in on four educational sessions focused on sustainability, genomics, value-added beef programs and marketing. The National Hereford Women (NHW) held their annual meeting midmorning to discuss business, elect new board members and recognize the Hereford Woman of the Year. The evening was spent honoring commendable breeders and junior members during the Hereford Honorees reception and awards ceremony. The AHA Annual Membership Meeting took place Saturday morning to outline ongoing projects at the AHA and to elect new members to the Board of Directors. Newly elected to the AHA Board are Bill Goehring, Libertyville, Iowa; Whitey Hunt, Madison, Ga.; and Becky King-Spindle, Moriarty, N.M. Attendees then migrated to the American Royal for the Ladies of the Royal Sale followed by the Junior Hereford Show. Sunday morning entailed the senior Board Q&A session and the National Hereford Show. The selection of the National Hereford Queen wrapped up the weekend.

Partners in innovation This great event would not be possible without the generous support of our industry partners and supporters.

Special recognitions During Friday’s Hereford Honorees awards ceremony, the AHA recognized Olsen Ranch, Harrisburg, Neb., and Stahly Ranch, Cavour, S.D., for their 20 years of dedication to the National Reference Sire Program (NRSP). These two outfits have provided a platform to validate and to track the genetic progress of the breed and have been involved with the NRSP since the evaluation’s inception in 1999. “I’m confident in saying that without the support of the Olsen and Stahly operations, the influence of Hereford genetics in the commercial industry would not be where it is today,” says Shane Bedwell, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement. The NRSP began as a collaboration with the National Beef Tenderness project. Over the course of two decades, this program has captured several key economically relevant traits and genomic data through all aspects of production. More than 425 bulls have been tested during the program’s lifetime and several ranches have

participated as test herds. This year the NRSP reached a milestone of its own, celebrating its 20th anniversary. Another memorable moment of the awards ceremony recognized finalists of the Marketing Fitness Challenge. Following “The Brand” Marketing Summit, an eight-week challenge was launched to continue the momentum from the event. During the challenge, contestants completed simple weekly tasks to strengthen their marketing strategies. Challenges included contacting sale barn managers, promoting the Certified Hereford Beef ® brand at local restaurants and retailers, showing appreciation to current customers, and sharing content on social media. Each week, participants sent in examples of their marketing efforts to show how they were building upon concepts presented at “The Brand.” Nine participants excelled at the challenge — the AHA would like to congratulate Katie Colyer, Philip Moon, Lee Elzemeyer, Sarah Monson, Marilyn Lenth, Shelia Jensen, Dale Venhuizen, Russ Tegtmeier and Zach Tessier for their outstanding efforts. During the Hereford Honorees awards ceremony, Mark Core, chief marketing officer at Vermeer, recognized these top participants for their efforts. Their names were entered in a drawing for the use of a Vermeer baler for a year, and Phillip Moon was selected as the lucky winner onstage. Moon graciously donated the lease back to be sold, with proceeds going toward AHA research and projects.

Staying Informed Industry representatives led discussion to “Talk Innovation” during the 2019 educational forum.

T

he educational component of the American Hereford Association (AHA) Annual Membership Meeting and Conference is a must-attend for experienced and new members alike. Brought to attendees in part by the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and the National Corn Growers Association, this year’s lineup featured four sessions covering the sustainability of the beef industry, beef cattle genomics, value-added marketing and growing an operation’s marketing strategy. See below for a summary of each presentation. Innovation Through Sustainability Beef’s environmental footprint has been the target of much misguided scrutiny in recent years, and antianimal activist groups have responded accordingly. Luckily, science is on beef’s side, and when paired with a positive message, these facts can help quell negative opinions — especially at upcoming holiday dinner parties. As Sara Place, Ph.D., with the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association explains, sustainability pertaining to beef encompasses environmental stewardship, economic viability and social responsibility. The conversations can become complicated when producers are trying to balance these issues, but Place shares several counterclaims to use when debating myths about beef. Myth: Cattle harm the environment Reality: Beef’s carbon footprint certainly receives the bulk of attention, namely due to alarming statistics about beef’s impact on the environment.

Hereford.org

Many industry-wide statistics are reported out of context, and global figures are often mistakenly used to describe U.S. beef production. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, beef cattle in the U.S. contribute a mere 2% to total U.S. emission levels — which equates to less than 0.5% of all global greenhouse emissions. Globally, beef production accounts for 6% of all greenhouse gas emissions. In reality beef has an amazing efficiency story. From 1910 to 2015, the U.S. population soared from 90 million to 321 million, with the average life span increasing from 52 to 79 years. Meanwhile, the ratio of the number of cattle per person decreased by 58%, and the U.S. beef industry’s footprint declined by 33% — all while producing the same pounds of beef per person. Because of progress in genetics, animal husbandry and management, the U.S. supplies much of the world’s beef (20%) while using the least amount of resources. Methane from cattle supposedly comes from “cow farts,” which are not a real thing. The microbes which ferment carbohydrates in the rumen naturally release methane during digestion but do so through the mouth. When fed high-concentrate diets like corn, cattle release less methane. With declining cattle numbers and the majority of beef cattle being grain-finished in the U.S., the claim that cattle are driving higher methane levels does not add up. Furthermore, cow burps do not release excess carbon into the atmosphere. Recalling lessons from chemistry class, the law of conservation

of energy is at play here. The chemical structure of methane is one carbon and four hydrogen atoms. When methane is released into the atmosphere from ruminant animals, one carbon atom is emitted into the air as methane. But, let us start from the beginning of the food chain process. Plants generate energy from photosynthesis, a process which pulls sunlight and carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide contains one carbon atom, so carbon released into the atmosphere as methane is simply replacing the carbon absorbed by plants for photosynthesis. Methane eventually converts back into carbon dioxide and the process repeats itself. Myth: Cattle waste resources Reality: For the most part, humans do not compete with beef for food resources. Of the feed resources needed to produce the 27 billion pounds of beef each year in the U.S., 82% come from forage. If one thinks about it, beef can be considered solar-energy products, or upcyclers. Cattle consume forages made from rainwater, sunlight and carbon dioxide and convert those into a feed source with twice the protein content. They take a product of no value to humans and turn it into a wholesome nutrient source. Chicken and pork also provide high-quality protein but require a high-quality protein diet since they do not have a ruminant digestive tract. Cattle are also scrutinized for grazing land that could otherwise be used to grow human-edible crops. In the U.S. one third of the land area is December 2019 |

2019 Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

uncultivatable. Cattle are the only way to harness solar energy from those forages, and if left ungrazed, those areas would be at a higher risk for wildfires. Harvesting higher levels of humanedible crops can also prove problematic because for every 100 pounds of human food that comes from crops, an average of 37 pounds of byproducts are generated globally. Alternative proteins, like Beyond Meat and the Impossible burgers, contain plant-based protein sources that generate byproducts. Most of those byproducts go to livestock feeds that would otherwise be wasted completely, so livestock actually make up a big chunk of the supply chain for plant-based proteins. Myth: Red meat is unhealthy — and Americans eat too much of it Reality: Although red meat is making a comeback in the medical field, beef’s stigma in regard to human health still exists. In the U.S. conditions like heart disease, Type II diabetes and obesity are on the rise, yet red meat consumption has flatlined. United States Department of Agriculture data report Americans eat the same amount of beef per capita now as they did 100 years ago. Logically, that data makes it hard to link red meat to an increase in harmful diseases. Despite the negative attention of beef consumption, beef and other animal-sourced foods are critical to nutritional development. Humans require the dietary essential amino acids which make up animal proteins. While plant-based proteins do contain

amino acids, none provide all dietary essential amino acids in one sitting. Therefore, plant-based proteins need to be paired strategically to deliver the minimal amino acid requirements. Globally, one in four children suffers from mental and physical stunted growth. Without animal proteins, the U.S. would not be able to produce enough plant-based foods to fulfill the dietary micronutrient requirements of the growing population. People would be overfed on a caloric basis but malnourished on a vitamin and mineral basis — and would be particularly deficient in Vitamin B12. The takeaway: Will going meatless save the planet? Quite the opposite! “The bottom line is there is no way to eat our way out of climate change,” Place says. “Even though a lot of this [issue] is framed either or — either livestock or plant agriculture — of course we need both.” She emphasizes our agricultural system needs plants and animals working together to benefit the environment, the economy and society. “We hear a lot about plant-based meat, and I think cattle producers need to realize [they] already utilize an amazing technology to make meat from plants,” Place says. “It’s a technology that’s mobile, without burning fossil fuels, and it converts solar energy that’s inedible to people into a high-quality protein source. While it’s doing that it produces an organic fertilizer that feeds the

soil, and the chief criteria there, too, is it self-replicates. One of those conversation starters you can use is that we already have plant-based meat — it’s called beef.” Innovation Through Genomics The AHA has always been ahead of the curve on data collection and was an early adopter of publishing genomic-enhanced expected progeny differences (GE-EPDs). Leoma Wells, strategic account manager with GeneSeek, encourages seedstock and commercial producers to utilize genomics in their selection decisions for several reasons. She shares that genomics are useful for parentage verification, diagnosis, selection decisions, herd management and marketing. Paired with phenotypic data, genotyping identifies which animals inherited which variabilities and increases the accuracy of EPDs. “With genomics, we are able to shorten that generation turnaround and we are able to give you more information at a younger age through the utilization of the tools that are available,” Wells says. “Genomics fill in the missing piece and add what you can’t see.” To collect DNA for genotyping, Wells recommends using a tissue sampling unit (TSU), but blood and hair samples also suffice. Then, submit samples with the correct AHA-issued paperwork to the GeneSeek lab. After three to four weeks, the DNA results are reported back to the AHA and are run through the genetic evaluation, which generates GE-EPDs. The take-home with genomics is to genotype animals early. Submitting DNA on a one- to two-week-old animal is best because data on that animal will be available prior to weaning and will be most effective in selection decisions. “You have to look at genomics as being an investment instead of a cost,” Wells emphasizes. “You are investing in the future of your operation as well as the customers that you are serving.” Innovation Through Added Value Brian Bertelsen, vice president of field operations for US Premium Beef (USPB) shared an overview of how the

producer-owned beef company operates and dove into “what has value” in grid marketing. This session described how genetic selection and data can be used to improve quality.

About USPB USPB is a marketing company that provides U.S. beef producers an opportunity to retain ownership from ranch to rail of the cattle they produce. The producer-owned beef company provides a value-added platform for its unitholders and associates to market finished cattle through National Beef Packing Co. With USPB as a part owner of National Beef Packing Co., one of the nation’s largest beef processors, a direct economic incentive is provided for individuals to produce the highest quality beef possible. “Those [cattle] that come through our company are all priced on a valuebased grid,” Bertelsen says. “My job is to help [producers] understand the data they get back, how the grid works, what has value and the things they can do through management, nutrition and genetics so they can maximize the quality and value, which of course effects their bottom line.”

What has value The benefit of marketing on a grid is the value that can be added for highquality cattle, Bertelsen says. The key premium drivers are quality grade, dressing percent, yield grade and outweight. It is important to be aware of how those drivers can negatively change when feeding cattle too long or marketing too early. Bertelsen says producers should be mindful of data associated with their cattle in order to recognize strengths and weaknesses and that herd information starts with genetics. Genetic improvement comes from better prediction values, meaning better EPDs. Better EPDs come from more data. The correlation between genetic improvement and increased carcass performance has been proven, Bertelsen adds. Hereford.org

“People have shared with me carcass data related to EPDs of the sire show the EPDs work and match the carcass data,” Bertelsen says. “They match the grid and premium results. That’s what our commercial producers are doing who understand how to use EPDs and DNA testing.” Taking advantage of marketing programs, such as USPB, is a great way for producers to gain realworld data and feeding experience to improve genetic quality in their herds. By beginning with the end in mind, producers can be rewarded for superior quality cattle to add value to the bottom line. Innovation Through Marketing Mark Core, chief marketing officer at Vermeer Corporation, wrapped up the final session with a recap from “The Brand” Marketing Summit, which assisted breeders with developing an effective marketing strategy. Core described how to leverage an operation’s values to form marketing goals and was joined by Becky Allan, Bar A Cattle Co., and Sheila Jensen, Jensen Bros., to share the advantages of utilizing social media and video. “If this breed does a better job of telling the same story about what’s right about Herefords, and we have more breeders [telling] their story in an aggressive but yet humble manner, we will continue to be on fire in terms of growth and consumer acceptance,” Core says. “I believe we were able to accomplish that with The Brand.”

Before breeders embark on any marketing task, they need to first identify their operation’s “True North,” a directional compass to guide decision making. This process includes outlining goals, strengths and weaknesses. Core recommends answering this fundamental question: “What is it that we can do as a Hereford breeder or ranch that is better than what anyone else can do?” Core says regardless of size and location, producers need to focus on a target audience who synchronize with the values their ranch or brand provides. Then producers must be effective and expressive with reaching their target audience. “Get in your mind that you have to express yourself every week,” Core says. “It doesn’t have to be just social media. It could be going to a sale barn and being able to sit down with an auctioneer or sale barn manager and discussing the attributes you are doing as a breeder or the Hereford brand.” Core encourages small business owners to watch what others do. From his perspective, the best brands are unique, and customers will pay for a premium brand they connect with emotionally. “There are two traits of agriculturalist — we love the physical work and we are humble people in general that feed this world, but we don’t market,” Core says. “We simply have to make a balance. We owe it to our customers, ourselves [and] to our families.”

2019 Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

New AHA Board Directors Elected A

merican Hereford Association (AHA) voting delegates elected Bill Goehring, Libertyville, Iowa; Whitey Hunt, Madison, Ga.; and Becky King-Spindle, Moriarty, N.M., to serve on the Board of Directors. Each candidate will serve four-year terms on the 12-member Board. Joel Birdwell, Kingfisher, Okla., was elected the 2020 AHA President and Mark St. Pierre, El Nido, Calif., was elected vice president. Completing their terms on the AHA Board were retiring president Pete Atkins, Tea, S.D., and directors Kyle Pérez, Nara Visa, N.M., and Jim Bellis, Auora, Mo.

Joel Birdwell Joel Birdwell, Kingfisher, Okla., was selected as the 2020 AHA president. He and his wife, Bridget, and three sons, Jarret, Judson and Joel Birdwell Jhett, reside in Kingfisher, Okla., on the ranch his family homesteaded 115 years ago. Joel raised and showed Hereford cattle in his youth and was involved in state and national junior Hereford programs. He attended Oklahoma State University, where he was a member of the 1995 livestock

judging team, and managed the university’s purebred beef cattle herd after graduation. To help Bridget’s family expand their farming and cattle operation, Joel and Bridget moved to Kingfisher in 2002. In Kingfisher, they run approximately 2,000 head of stocker cattle annually and have more than 400 commercial cows utilizing a crossbreeding rotation of Hereford, Angus and Charolais genetics. Cattle are marketed through video and private treaty sales. Joel also partners with his father on 300 registered Hereford and Angus cows, which are on the family ranch in Fletcher, Okla. Approximately 100 head of bulls and females are marketed through a February production sale and via private treaty. Following in his father’s footsteps, Joel has been growing his purebred auction business for the past 10 years.

Mark St. Pierre Mark St. Pierre is the beef manager at Pedretti Ranches in El Nido, Calif. He is a member of the Pedretti family, and he worked in the family business for 36 years.

Mark St. Pierre

At Pedretti Ranches, Mark manages the Hereford herd, which consists of 200 registered cows with 100 calving in the spring and 100 calving in the fall. The Pedrettis have long emphasized performance data in their Hereford herd with performance records dating back to the 1950s. While the ranch received recognition in the showring in the ’70s and early ’80s, including cattle shown on the Hill and in the carloads at the National Western Stock Show, the Pedrettis’ goal has always been to produce cattle that work for the commercial cattlemen in California. Pedretti Ranches raises approximately 80 bulls each year, which are marketed by private treaty sales. With two calving seasons six months apart, the ranch always has the next set of bulls on test. Both Mark and his father-in-law, Gino Pedretti, work with commercial customers. Pedretti Ranches focuses on sound cattle with balanced expected progency differences, good disposition and udder quality. Mark manages the day-to-day work including addressing herd health issues, vaccination schedules, feeding, pasture management, breeding and calving. He also works in the farming operation, which involves growing cotton, corn and hay. He also has some limited duty on the family dairy.

Pictured are the 2020 American Hereford Association Board of Directors. Seated (l to r) are: 2020 AHA President Joel Birdwell, Kingfisher, Okla.; Mark St. Pierre, vice president, El Nido, Calif.; Tommy Mead, Midville, Ga.; Bruce Thomas, Goldcreek, Mont.; Joe Waggoner, Carthage, Miss.; Nate Frederickson, Spearfish, S.D.; and Jack Ward, AHA executive vice president.

Mark has served as a CaliforniaNevada Hereford Association board member and has hosted numerous tours. He has been a Merced-Mariposa County Cattlemen’s Association director, a member of the Chowchilla High School FFA ag advisory committee, a 4-H leader and a volunteer fireman. Mark has also served as a deacon and elder in his local church. Mark and his wife, Kim, have two children — a daughter, Christy, and a son, Matt, and his wife, Leah — and one granddaughter.

Bill Goehring Representing the Northeast region, Bill Goehring and his family started in the Hereford business in 1973. Goehring Herefords’ registered cow herd Bill Goehring consists of 150 spring-calving cows and 50 fall-calving cows, and their commercial Angus herd includes 400 spring-calving cows and heifers. The Goehrings breed 100 registered heifers every year as well as 450 black and black-whiteface heifers for their annual sale. Additionally, they background 800 to 1,000 steers and finish 500 head at custom yards. An alumni of Iowa State University, Bill received a degree in animal science and then attended the World Wide College of Auctioneering. The Goehring family purchased a local livestock market in Keosauqua, Iowa, in 1986 and now market 40,000 head annually in addition to market hogs, sheep, goats and hay. Growing up, Bill served on the boards of the National Junior Hereford Association and the Iowa Junior Hereford Association. He went on to serve on the board of directors for the Iowa Hereford Association and was president for two years. Bill and his wife, Becky, have four sons — Curtis (Lauren), Lucas (Cody), Ted (Rachelle) and Colby (Hannah) — and one granddaughter. “In thinking back on the events of last weekend and the election to the AHA board, it was a most humbling experience for me,” Goehring says. “The Board, the delegates and staff Hereford.org

were very gracious in welcoming the new Board members following the election process. I am really looking forward to working on increasing the value of Hereford sired feeder cattle and breeding stock. When we can compete in the marketplace, we will add value all across the Hereford industry. Thank you for making this opportunity possible!”

Whitey Hunt Whitey Hunt began working on and managing his family’s Hereford operation in 1972 and now owns and operates Innisfail Farm in Madison, Whitey Hunt Ga., with his wife, Lyn. Partnering with his son, Weyman, they breed 90-120 females and implant approximately 150 embryos annually for fall calving. Bulls are primarily marketed through The Source Bull Sale in Georgia and the bull test programs of Clemson University, the University of Florida, and the Alabama Beef Cattle Improvement Association. Bulls are also sold private treaty, while steers are run through the Georgia Beef Challenge. An average of 60 females are sold annually through private treaty, as well. A native of Madison, Whitey received a Bachelor of Science degree in animal science with a minor in agronomy from the University of Georgia. He is a former board member and president of the Georgia Hereford Association (GHA). In addition to the cattle operation at Innisfail, Whitey and Weyman own and operate Godfrey’s Warehouse and Georgia Fertilizer, established in the 1870s. Whitey and Lyn have two sons — Robbs (Johanna) and Weyman (Ashley) — and five grandsons. “It was an honor to be included in such a strong slate of candidates,” says Whitey Hunt, who represents the Southeast region. “I thank the AHA Board, membership, and voting delegates for giving me this opportunity. My focus for this breed is the continued expansion of Certified Hereford Beef, reducing discounts on purebred Hereford calves, a

broadened use of genomic traits and tools and continued expansion of educational efforts for our juniors, our membership, commercial cattlemen, consumers and the food industry.”

Becky King-Spindle Fourth-generation rancher and Southwest region representative Becky King-Spindle and her husband, Tom, help run her father’s ranch, the Becky Bill King Ranch in King-Spindle Moriarty, N.M. The King family has been ranching and farming in Moriarty for 103 years and was honored as the 2015 New Mexico Ranch Family of the Year. Recognized as a BEEF Magazine Seedstock 100 operation for several years, Bill King Ranch is home to 400 purebred Hereford cows, 300 Angus cows and 300 purebred Charolais cows. The diversified operation grows alfalfa, silage corn and winter wheat and also has a feedlot, where cattle are fed and marketed as non-hormone, age- and source-verified natural beef. The Kings buy back calves from their seedstock customers to put in their feedlot and to market in their brand’s all-natural program. They also sell all-natural beef at local farmers markets under the Bill King Ranch brand. Becky and her family also sell 350-400 bulls each year private treaty. After attending New Mexico State University, Becky came home with her husband to raise their children — Jordan (Brendon) Lockmiller, Abby, Cash and Charli Grace. Becky has served on the boards of the National Junior Hereford Association, the New Mexico Hereford Association and the National Hereford Women and advises the New Mexico Junior Hereford Association. “I am honored and humbled to have been elected to represent the Hereford breeders on the AHA Board of Directors,” says King-Spindle. “I look forward to continuing the work of the Board to increase demand for the Hereford breed in both the commercial market and the CHB program.”

2019 Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

Hall of Fame, Merit Inductees Honored Hall of Fame Recipients George and Harry Tjardes, Gibson City, Ill.; Denny Hoffman, Thedford, Neb.; Guy Colyer, Bruneau, Idaho; and Mark Cooper, Willow Creek, Mont., were inducted into the Hereford Hall of Fame during the American Hereford Association (AHA) Hereford Honorees awards ceremony during the AHA Annual Membership Meeting and Conference. The Hall of Fame award is presented annually and recognizes dynamic breeders who have influenced the advancement of the Hereford breed.

George and Harry Tjardes Starting out with 10 cows their father purchased, the late George and Harry Tjardes of Gibson City, Ill., began raising Hereford cattle in 1946 and built a nationally recognized herd. Harry always took a “think before you do” approach, while George was known for “measuring out” every decision for the operation. “The Tjardes boys,” as many knew them, decided to purchase a herd bull

to take their genetics to the next level, which led them to purchase Beau Aster Hervalation 14th from Leland Herman, Wayne City, Neb. George wanted to exhibit the offspring at local county fairs to help put the Tjardes name on the map. Despite not being old enough to drive, George strategically bummed rides to 14 different fairs. In 1955, the dynamic duo began exhibiting at the Illinois State Fair. The brothers would go on to have a champion, or at least a reserve bull or heifer, every year until 1966. The 1958 state fair was especially notable as the duo claimed champion and reserve bull, champion and reserve female, get-of-sire and best six head — a feat still unmatched to this day. Their national show career peaked in 1975 when they exhibited the national champion female and reserve national champion bull in Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Mo. Outside the showring, George and Harry hosted major successful sales averaging more than $5,000 multiple times in the late ’70s, opening the door to partnership opportunities across the U.S. George and Harry were also known for taking time to help young

agriculture and cattle enthusiasts. Scott Torrance, Media, Ill., interned for Tjardes Farms and later partnered with the brothers. Scott considered their operation the “golden standard” in Illinois. “The system and methods of George and Harry, and their drive for perfection have had a lifelong impact on me,” Scott says. “They truly upheld the highest ideals of a man and his livestock. George and Harry were true visionaries and role models for a generation.” The brothers each served as president for the Illinois Polled Hereford Association and both of their wives were active in the Illinois Poll-Ettes. George attended the University of Illinois, and Harry, Oklahoma State University. George and his wife, Marilyn, and Harry and his wife, Gale, have raised their children and grandchildren to be Hereford breeders, farmers, rural bankers, veterinarians, ruminant nutritionists, accountants and engineers. Illinois breeders commend the Tjardes brothers for advancing the cattle industry as a whole, for fostering immense passion for agriculture and, most of all, for passing those qualities to future generations.

in Thedford, Neb., along with his wife, Dixie. The operation — which includes Denny’s son, Jason, and his wife, Kaycee, and their children, Haxton, Kennedy and Hayden. Other family members include Denny’s daughter Stephanie and her husband, Randy Myers, and their daughter, Shayne; daughter Regan and her husband, Curt Hain, and their children Lilly and Logan. And finally, daughter Jennifer Goodman and her children Garrett and Parker — runs 300 Hereford cows, a herd of Angus and a set of commercial cows for an extensive embryo transfer (ET) program. The Hoffmans host two sales each year and exhibit cattle at national shows across the country and are very involved in helping their younger buyers become successful in the showring. With more than 60 years of active involvement in the breed, Denny began the early part of his career as a herdsman for Stone Herefords, Hermiston, Ore., where he fit several champions both on the “Hill” and in the “Yards” at the National Western Stock Show (NWSS) in Denver. He also judged the national Hereford show on the Hill in 1989. He served on the AHA Board of Directors from 2006-2010 and held a position on the board for the CaliforniaNevada Hereford Association. His extensive mentorship also includes helping several young herdsmen, many of whom went on to be named Herdsman of the Year in Denver. On a courageous leap of faith, Denny moved the family operation Hereford.org

from California to Nebraska in order to grow and to sustain the business for the next generation. Longtime customers Will and Jennifer Harrison from Montague, Calif., note, “We do not feel there is a more fitting example of a gentleman who has built his legacy the ‘all-American’ way through hard work and determination with his family at his side.” Beyond the Hereford breed, Denny is very active in the beef industry and the Thedford community. His passion for mentoring youth has resulted in roles as a 4-H leader, FFA advisor and Little League baseball coach. Before making the move to Nebraska, he was CEO of the Intermountain Fair for 17 years and has since held multiple leadership roles with the Nebraska State Fair. He is known for his personable character and is respected for his

honesty, openness and integrity with customers and other breeders. “[Denny] is an aggressive thinker with their breeding program and is always looking for something different to help improve their genetics, their customers and the industry,” shares Marie Farr. “Denny has a lot of pride in what he does and also in his family. [He] once said, ‘I have failed a lot of times, but I believe you need to get up as many times as you have been knocked down.’”

Hereford dispersion and BB Cattle Co. and the entire cow herd from Tom and Ardis Dashiell. Together, they built the ranch and cow herd to what it is today. Colyer Hereford and Angus in Bruneau, Idaho, consists of 300 registered Hereford cows and 75 replacement heifers. Guy’s parents, the late Ray and Bonnie Colyer, began building the Angus herd in 1993 to provide two breeds for their commercial customers. The Colyers have been producing ET calves since 1983, and now more than 90% of their calf crop is a result of artificial insemination (AI) or ET. Always on the cutting edge, the Colyers hosted the very first Internet sale in 2003 to market their females. In October, they hosted their 18th annual female sale and this coming February, the Colyers will host their 40th annual bull sale. Their main objective is to produce a volume of range bulls, but they are also proud to have produced the world-recordselling Hereford bull as well as four of the six Hereford bulls that have been two-time Denver champions. A graduate of the University of Idaho’s animal science department, Guy helped start its “Steer-A-Year” program. He was awarded the U.S. Livestock Industry Leader of the Year honor in 2017 by the NWSS. Colyer Hereford and Angus was recognized

as the U.S. Senate Small Business of the Month for March 2018 on the Senate floor. Guy has represented the breed in many capacities, including having served on the AHA Board from 1992-1998. He served on the merger committee during that time and also chaired the nominating committee in 2006. He attended the World Hereford Conference in Uruguay in 2017 and went on a trade mission to Mexico in 2018. Being major proponents of Hereford youth, the Colyers have hosted the Idaho Junior State Hereford Field Day and Show for four years and the Northwest Regional Show for two years. They have also hosted the Faces of Leadership Conference, then known as PRIDE. Guy is quick to note Colyer Hereford and Angus is a family operation with everyone working together. He, Sherry, and their children, Kyle and Katie, along with Kyle’s wife, Bobby Jean, and their children Piper and Cruz, all play an active role in keeping the operation at the forefront. “You can find Guy driving around in his Jeep Cherokee chewing Redman while checking on cattle any given day, unless there is a Yankees game on TV,” notes Aaron Wilbourn with

W6 Herefords. “All kidding aside, Guy is an example of what I think a good cowman is. His family is his priority and what a great family he has.”

Mark Cooper Mark Cooper was raised on his family’s cattle ranch in southwestern Montana and spent his formative years digging in the soil, stretching wire, and learning the true art of growing crops and breeding cattle from his father and uncles. Mark was very fortunate to “learn by doing” and has worked alongside some truly amazing gentlemen, in cluding his father, Jack Cooper, and uncles, Les Holden, Dr. Ray Woodward and Dr. Scott Cooper. Each of these men was instrumental in shaping Mark’s life. Their guidance and wisdom undoubtedly contributed to Mark’s success as a rancher and farmer. Mark’s love of ranching influenced him to attend Montana State University, where he focused his studies on animal science and agronomy. He returned home to the ranch in 1977 and settled into the day-to-day operation alongside

his father and mentor, Jack Cooper. For more than 30 years, the two worked side by side to expand their farming operation, settled in 1914, and to grow their registered Hereford operation, which Jack and his wife, Phyllis, started in 1946. Cooper Hereford Ranch has been a pioneer in the beef industry since its inception. As charter members of both the Montana Beef Performance Association and the AHA’s Whole Herd Total Performance Records (TPR™), both Jack and Mark recognized the importance of integrating new tools and tests set forth by breed associations and the cattle industry at large. With more than 70 years in the seedstock business, the operation remains a go-to source for premium Hereford genetics. In March of 2020, Mark and his wife, Cristy, will host the operation’s 54th annual production sale. “The Cooper Hereford Ranch production sale has been and continues to be a benchmark sale for the breed,” says Mark St. Pierre and Gino Pedretti of Pedretti Ranches. “The Coopers have produced bulls and females that have impacted the Hereford breed since the ’70s.” Over the years, Mark has contributed greatly to the Hereford breed on state, national and international levels. He does his best to break down walls between breeds and to encourage collaboration for the betterment of the beef industry as a whole, which has earned him

great respect from the agricultural community of Montana and has led to his participation on numerous boards. Many young and seasoned producers alike turn to Mark for guidance as he is always giving of his time and humble in his mentorship. “His high level of commitment to all pursuits, his passion for the agriculture industry as a whole and his personal qualities make him a model breeder,” says Kenneth Coleman with Coleman Herefords. “It is my pleasure to have him as not only a friend, but he has become someone I admire for his immense leadership in our Association.”

Hall of Merit Jack Chastain, Ft. Worth, Texas, and Jim Reed, Green Ridge, Mo., were honored by the AHA as the newest members of the Hereford Hall of Merit. This prestigious award commends those who have played an avid role in shaping the Hereford breed and cattle industry.

Jack Chastain Known across the country as the face of the Texas Hereford Association (THA), Jack Chastain is considered the driving force behind the Hereford breed in the Southwest. An admired ambassador of the breed, Jack began his storied career

more than 50 years ago when he was named the executive secretary of the THA in 1973. He has spent his dynamic lifetime promoting and supporting Hereford producers at every level from purebred to commercial breeders to Certified Hereford Beef markets. His ability to effectively network with all segments of the industry has been a binding force as the THA continues to be a national leader in junior and senior memberships and registrations. As many put it, when you think of the THA, you think of Jack. He has played a huge role in elevating the national Hereford show at the Fort Worth Stock Show and in building its prestige. The Texas membership meeting at the Fort Worth Stock Show is a true testament to the Chastain family’s passion, enthusiasm and drive to better the THA and the breed. Jack has traveled countless hours to sales and shows across the country to keep THA and AHA members at the forefront of the industry. In fact, when he first took office, he journeyed throughout the state to meet every producer in the THA membership to study each individual’s herd. When not on the road, he can be found in the Ft. Worth office organizing the THA magazine and striving to get new members for the adult and junior associations. Jack and his wife, Lyn, are recognized as some of the most Jack Chastain, Ft. Worth, Texas, was inducted into the Hereford Hall of Merit.

generous and proactive youth supporters in the breed and are longstanding Texas Junior Hereford Association advisors. They have operated Mockingbird Hill Herefords since their marriage in 1975 and this year added their son, Lee, daughterin-law, Candace, and their two grandsons, Jackson and Griffin, to the operation, now called Chastain Cattle Co. Their grandsons are the sixth generation to operate the land deeded to the Chastain family in 1853, which has been home to Hereford cattle since 1930. Together, the family has built a legacy of Hereford cattle reaching far beyond their roots in Ft. Worth. Their devotion to serving the membership and progressing the THA and the breed as a whole is unrivaled. Kyle and Michael Pérez of Pérez Cattle Co. note, “When Jack finally decides to retire, there will be a hole as large as Texas in the association that may never be totally filled. There has never been anyone more deserving and dedicated to this great breed.”

Jim Reed Born and raised as the fourth generation of his family to live in Green Ridge, Mo., Jim Reed and his wife, Linda, began raising

Hereford cattle in 1962. For the last 44 years, Reed Enterprises has been the operation’s genetic marketing arm by providing semen and AI certificates. The couple also operates Midwest Cattle Service and Reed Farms. At the request of Mark Dempsey with the Missouri Ruralist, Jim worked his first sale as a college student for Harry and Hal Nichols in 1963. From that moment, he was forever hooked as a ringman. Jim came on board as the Beef Superintendent for the Missouri State Fair in 1972, where he dedicated 17 years to serving fairgoers and the beef industry. One of his most memorable moments was President Ronald Reagan’s visit to the fair, where Reagan’s secret service took over the beef cattle office. Another iconic moment was the fair’s 1974 Hereford show, which featured 411 head of polled Herefords and more than 100 head of horned Herefords. Jim now serves on the Missouri State Fair Foundation board of directors, where he remains dedicated to cultivating the next generation of agriculture through preservation, education and improvement initiatives. In partnership with close friend Bill Maerli of Owensville, Mo., Jim and Linda formed Midwest Cattle Service in 1975 to manage polled Hereford and Simmental sales throughout the U.S. Although Bill

left to pursue other interests, Jim and Linda continued to grow the business as a husband-and-wife team and have helped market millions of dollars’ worth of Hereford genetics over the last 57 years. Jim has worked with breeders to hold successful production and consignment sales, has organized small groups of breeders to host joint sales, and has screened cattle and has managed major sales throughout the country. Jim has been a trustworthy source for information and trends across the breed, and many aspiring Hereford breeders have sought his advice on sale cattle selection and production sale traditions. A testament to his commitment to Hereford breeders is his ability to remember the names, hometowns and even street addresses of his peers. He continues to serve as a consultant and ringman at sales nationwide while producing and promoting Hereford genetics everywhere he goes. “Jim is a true influencer of the breed,” says Marty Lueck, manager of Journagan Ranch of Missouri State University. “Jim and Linda have supported our Hereford breed for a lifetime. They continue to be a catalyst for the Hereford breed and our breeders’ programs.”

Ron and Cheryl are blessed with four wonderful grandchildren and hope they will continue with the family’s Herford legacy.

Ron Beaver Herefords

Diamond J Farms

While serving as a vocational agriculture teacher in Anamosa, Iowa, Ron Beaver decided he wanted to start raising Hereford cattle. He headed to the Stanley Vance Dispersal Sale in Traer, Iowa, and with the purchase of two registered cow-calf pairs, Ron established Ron Beaver Herefords in September 1965. Ron Beaver Herefords has continued to cultivate its herd of Herefords by focusing on selecting sires to improve the herd and only retain high-quality heifers. Ron’s wife, Cheryl, and their four children have been an essential part of the operation’s success over the years.

Diamond J Farms is located in Beaver County, Okla., and is owned and operated by MC and Becky James. MC is 86 years young and bought his first Hereford when he was 16 years old. His first wife, Bonita, worked by his side in this venture for 47 years and was a large part of the operation. Becky met MC in church and began helping him on the farm after Bonita passed. They were married in 2002, and she has now been working with MC to improve the breeding program for 19 years. Their cow-calf operation consists of approximately 100 head of registered polled Herefords, and MC has 70 years of selective breeding experience. The

“As a cattle producer, 50 years in the business is a great accomplishment,” says Shane Bedwell, AHA chief operating officer and director of breed improvement. “The AHA congratulates each of these Golden Breeders and their families for their passion and commitment to the Hereford breed.”

Banks Polled Herefords Doug and Jane Banks, Ada, Okla., started their herd with four registered polled Hereford heifers in 1966 and in 1968 became lifetime members of the AHA. As an early adopter of the American Polled Hereford Association’s guidelines program, Doug has been an avid believer in collecting performance data, which has earned his operation the honor of being a Gold TPR Breeder multiple times. The longtime Buckeye fans recently relocated to Oklahoma to expand their Hereford operation and to grow the demand for Hereford genetics in the commercial market. Doug is an active member of multiple youth boards Hereford.org

Gfeller Herefords, Junction City, Kan., was honored as a Golden Breeder. Pictured (l to r) are: Pete Atkins, Ty Breeden, Jamie Breeden, Josh Gfeller, Courtney Gfeller, Dick Gfeller, Kenny Gfeller and Debby Gfeller.

Jameses also farm and grow much of their own feed for the cattle and continue to offer bulls and replacement heifers for sale private treaty.

Gfeller Herefords After making his first and only purchase of 18 Hereford heifers in 1957, Dick Gfeller has been raising horned Hereford cattle near Junction City, Kan., for 62 years and counting. Never have any other females been purchased, but the herd has grown to about 100 registered cows and 200 commercial cows. In 1974 Dick’s son, Kenny, got his start in the business right out of high school with 10 cows as a graduation present and by purchasing all of his dad’s heifer calves that year. Now he and his wife, Debby, own the majority of the cows. Kenny’s mother, Earlene, was an influential

part of the operation until she passed in December 2015. The Gfellers operate a nearly closed herd, raising bulls in the registered herd to use in the commercial herd and only purchasing when an outcross is needed. They have a unique operation in that they are involved throughout every part of production. After the calves are weaned, they graze until they go to the family’s feedlot and then are harvested to National Beef in Dodge City, Kan.

Haught Bros. Ira Haught has been raising Hereford cattle since his grandfather, Denver Goff, A. Goff & Sons, gifted him and his brother, Barry, a cow in 1965. They registered their first Hereford calf in 1969, which officially established Haught Bros., Harrisonville, W. Va. Ira worked over 30 years off the farm

practicing law and during the evenings and weekends spent time working on the operation. The Haught brothers strived to center their cow herd on easy-keeping, easy-calving and longlasting females. Currently, Ira is enjoying his retirement from law and spends most of his days on the farm. Ira’s son, Derek, manages the Haught Bros.’ herd along with his own operation, Five Star Polled Herefords. The two herds consist of 150 brood cows and both have been recognized as Gold TPR Breeders. Ira and Derek look forward to hosting production sales at the farm and continuing their family legacy.

Jackson Farms In 1977, Theodore Jackson acquired his family’s 107.5-acre farm, in White House, Tenn., originally purchased in 1862 by his great grandfather, John Moss. Theodore and his wife, Margaret, and their son, Billy, began raising hay and registered Hereford cattle at the farm. Jackson Farms operates a progressive Hereford operation and the family strives to produce cattle with great disposition, great mothering ability and ones which do the best job of converting grass to beef. Theodore and Billy are the current owners of the farm where four generations of family reside, including Billy’s son, Cory, and his two children. Billy and his wife, Trudy, have been married for 45 years and have been in the Hereford business for 60 years. They look forward to passing on the legacy of their operation to the next generation.

JBB Herefords, Gooding, Idaho, was honored as a Golden Breeder. Pictured (l to r) are: James Anderson, Beverly Bryan, Dawn Anderson and Jae Anderson. Hereford.org


JMAR Farms, Long Lane, Mo., was honored as a Golden Breeder. Pictured (l to r) are: Pete Atkins and Loreta and Jack Meyer.

JBB Herefords JBB Herefords began in 1967 when John Bryan bought his wife, Beverly, three yearling Hereford heifers as an anniversary gift. From there they grew their registered Hereford herd to over 100 head and have sold bulls and females across the country. In 1991 John and Beverly’s son-in-law and daughter, James and Dawn Anderson, partnered in the ranch and became JBB/AL Herefords. Beverly still registers cattle under JBB Herefords to signify where the genetics began. John passed in 2013 and until the very end was very proud of their work in the Hereford industry. He and Beverly were also proud their grandchildren, Bryan and Jae Anderson, are very involved in the ranch and have Hereford cattle of their own. John and Beverly appreciated the support and advice given to them along the way by other Hereford breeders and the AHA field staff.

JMAR Farms Jack R. Meyer owns and operates JMAR Farm with his wife, Loreta, in Long Lane, Mo. In 1969 Jack joined the AHA. Over the years, Jack has served as president of the Wisconsin Hereford Association and the Jefferson County Beef Association and has been a 4-H beef leader for almost two decades and coached three of his four children with their beef projects. As a result of half a century in the breed, Jack has met countless influential individuals who have become family. He is blessed to have Hereford.org

crossed paths with so many great Hereford people and would like to thank those special friends for their help and support over the years.

Ollerich Bros. Jerome and James Ollerich of Ollerich Bros. Herefords bought their first eight registered Hereford heifer calves in November 1969 from Bones Hereford Ranch for $1,210. Jerome and James showed Herefords through their local 4-H and junior Hereford association. In 1978, they moved the operation from Sioux Falls, S.D., to Clearfield, S.D. Since then, they have raised Hereford bulls for commercial breeders and have sold all of their breeding cattle by private treaty sales. Over the years they have sold cattle to producers in 13 states and three foreign countries. Jerome has served as a member and president of the South Dakota Hereford Association board of directors. For the past two years, Ollerich Bros. has hosted the South Dakota Junior Hereford Association field day in Winner.

Donato Ramos Donato Ramos was born in Laredo, Texas, and has lived there his entire life, with the exception of his years in high school and college. His involvement with cattle started at the very young age of 7, when he helped his grandfather and great aunts on their cattle operation. Donato started his Hereford herd in 1964 after asking his family to buy him

a registered polled Hereford bull for his high school graduation. His family bought a registered polled Hereford bull from longtime polled Hereford breeder E. E. Vogt, San Antonio, Texas. At the time, Donato had a few Brahman cows, and he started an F1 breeding program. He soon learned Brahman cattle did not have the best disposition and returned to Vogt to purchase three registered polled Hereford cows. Over the years, Donato was very active with the Texas Polled Hereford Association, where he served as president and later was elected as a board member for the APHA. He is the longest-termed board member of both associations, serving from 1994 to 2001 and from 2000 to 2001 as vice chairman. Donato has consigned cattle to regional sales and has had four production sales in Laredo.

Ridenhour Herefords Ridenhour Herefords was first established by Leonard Fred Ridenhour, who became a lifetime member of the AHA in 1961. Leonard passed the operation down to his son, Freddie, who operates the ranch today with his wife, Cheril. Currently, the herd consists of approximately 75 head of registered polled Hereford females. Freddie’s love for the Hereford breed is apparent by his dedication to producing quality cattle that have acceptable birth weights, sound udders and good carcass merit for his customers. Leonard always said, December 2019 |

“If you are going to run a cattle operation there are two things you must have…a good pair of fencing pliers and a Hereford bull.” Fred feels these two necessities still hold true today.

C. Garnett Jones and his wife, Elinor, started their Hereford operation, River Bend Farms, in 1946 after receiving a horned Hereford bull and cow as a wedding present. River Bend Farms is located along the Flat Rock River near Waldron, Ind.

River Bend Farms, Waldron, Ind., was honored as a Golden Breeder. Pictured (l to r) are: Pete Atkins, Bill Doig, Ava Doig, Joni Doig, Bremley Doig and Leslie and Bill Doig, DVM.

The Joneses’ children, Leslie and Carl, began showing in 4-H in the 1960s and 1970s. Leslie and her husband, William Doig, a lifetime Association member, passed their passion for raising Hereford cattle down to their son, Bill. Bill has been very active in state and national junior organizations over the years and served as a director for the National Junior Polled Hereford Council from 1998 to 2000. Bill and his wife have continued the tradition with their two daughters, Ava and Bremley, who love spending time checking cows with their grandmother.

Wooden Shoe Farms Wooden Shoe Farms, as it is known today, is owned and operated by Neal and Shelly Ward, Bradley and Britany Ward, and Steve and Alicia Billman. Wooden Shoe has roots dating back 75 years with two different cattle operations — one in Idaho and one in Washington. In college Neal interned for the original Wooden Shoe Farms in Washington, which began 50 years ago when Jack Powell and Dick Frank purchased a tulip and daffodil farm and added cattle shortly after. In southeastern Idaho, Neal’s grandfather, Zeke Ward, operated LZ Ranch, which reached a point where it needed to be divided in 1976. At that point Zeke kept LZ Ranch, and Neal and his father, DeLoy, started Timber Creek Ranch. In 1992, when Wooden Shoe Farms in Washington dispersed, Neal and DeLoy purchased the entire herd and moved it to Blackfoot, Idaho, merging it with Timber Creek Ranch. The operation now consists of registered Herefords and Angus with an extensive embryo transfer program. 2019 marks 75 years in the Hereford industry for the Ward family, who now have five generations that have been involved in raising Hereford cattle. The Ward family look forward to continuing the family legacy of raising quality stock.

$180,000 in Scholarships Awarded to Hereford Youth T

wenty-six Hereford youth received more than $180,000 in scholarships from the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) Friday, Oct. 25, at the American Hereford Association (AHA) Hereford Honorees awards ceremony during the AHA Annual Meeting and Conference in Kansas City, Mo. “HYFA and its board members are very pleased to award a record-dollar amount and number of scholarships this year,” says HYFA President Ray Ramsey. “We know the cost of education continues to rise. Part of the HYFA mission is to assist Hereford youth in offsetting their college expenditures. It is our hope to benefit as many junior Hereford enthusiasts as possible, so we continue to push forward growing the HYFA assets that will fund scholarships, leadership and continued education.” Many generous donations throughout the years from multiple supporters of Hereford youth make these scholarships possible.

New scholarships Two new scholarships were awarded to seven outstanding National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) members at this year’s event. One of the newest endowments, the MGM Memorial Scholarship, was created by the Merry family and MGM Polled Herefords of Hartford, Wis. Gordon and Marian Merry started MGM Polled Herefords in 1956 with their five children. This scholarship honors the Merry family, who seeks to reward juniors who are passionate about Hereford cattle and interested in becoming veterinarians. The OXO and HYFA World Traveler scholarship is offered every four years and is designed to provide exceptional Hereford youth the opportunity to travel to the World Hereford Conference as AHA representatives. Recipients will be headed to Queenstown, New Zealand, March 7-13, 2020, for the 2020 World Hereford Conference. The OXO Scholarship honors the Legacy of the Matasovic family and this year HYFA is supporting a four-member travel team to participate in the young breeders competition.

This year’s scholarship recipients are: Ball Foundation/Cottonwood Springs Farm $5,000 Scholarship: Rusty Wolf, Alexandria, Ky. This scholarship honors the legacy of Ed and Virginia Ball, who had a passion for helping youth involved in the Hereford industry. Bar One Ranch $5,000 Scholarship: Bailey Morrell, Willows, Calif. George and Karen Sprague of Bar One Ranch, Eugene, Ore., made a generous donation to HYFA in 2011 for an annual scholarship to be awarded in honor of Ken Tracy, a fellow Hereford breeder who lost his battle with cancer.

2019 Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

NJHA Fed Steer Shootout Contest Winners Named For three years running, the National Junior Hereford Association (NJHA) has brought real-world experience and education to its junior membership. In 2019, 67 youth from 15 states entered 206 steers in the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout contest, powered by BioZyme® Inc. and the Feed the Future program. This year’s NJHA contest winners were recognized for their efforts Oct. 25 at the Hereford Honorees awards ceremony in Kansas City, Mo., and received close to $20,000 in awards from the Hereford Youth Foundation of America (HYFA) and BioZyme. Contestants collected actual feedyard performance and carcass merit data on both their pens and individual Hereford and Herefordinfluenced steers while gaining a comprehensive industry education on topics such as ultrasound technology, genetics and cattle health. All steers were fed at Gregory Feedlots in Tabor, Iowa, and through a generous sponsorship from Texas Stardance Cattle, steers were hauled to and harvested at National Beef Packing Co. in Dodge City, Kan., as candidates for the Certified Hereford Beef ® brand. “The NJHA Fed Steer Shootout proved to be yet another successful year

for the participants and I would like to congratulate all of the winners on their accomplishments,” says Trey Befort, American Hereford Association (AHA) director of commercial programs. “I am proud of all of the youth who have taken the initiative to participate in this contest and look forward to watching this program grow and develop in the years to come.” Participation nearly doubled from the previous year and so did BioZyme’s financial commitment and quest to bring education to the forefront of the contest. Contestants entered performance portfolios from data reports they received throughout the feeding period, and wrote an essay about what they learned from the process. The top five participants were selected from the submitted portfolios, and had the opportunity to travel to Kansas City, Mo., to compete for the NJHA Fed Steer Shootout Junior of the Year title during the AHA Annual Membership Meeting and Conference. These juniors presented a short speech and were interviewed about what they learned from the contest and how they can apply this knowledge in the beef industry.

2019 Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

Poised with Purpose

What does a queen study? Agricultural business and magement with minors in animal science, crop science, and economics and plans to graduate in May 2020 How long has the queen been involved in the National Junior Hereford Association? 14 years When did your sights become set on the crown? 2015 in Grand Island, Neb.

Melanie Fishel, North Carolina, stands ready to represent the Hereford breed as the 2019-20 National Hereford Queen. by Brooklyn Adam

A

s the shaving dust settles and the last calf leaves the ring, still standing is the most dedicated and strong woman to represent the Hereford breed — the National Hereford Queen. Taking the reins as the new National Hereford Queen, Melanie Fishel represents not only the Hereford breed but also her home state of North Carolina and the family of Hereford enthusiasts. As the first member in her family to be crowned Hereford royalty, she wears her crown with great pride and carries her love for Hereford cattle, not only on her head but deep in her heart. A fourth-generation Hereford breeder, Melanie comes from roots that run deep in this outstanding breed. Growing up on a family farm with her parents, Neil and Karen Fishel, and siblings, Clara and Wesley, she found her love for Herefords went beyond the showring. She pursued her goal of becoming a state queen and donned the North Carolina Hereford Queen sash in 2018. Not quite ready to retire the sash and crown, she knew her time was not over. She ran for National Hereford Queen in 2018 and was named the first runner-up at the National Hereford Queen Contest. Feeling defeated but more

determined than ever, she wore her shiny crown, stood tall and faced her fears and ran for the title of National Hereford Queen again in 2019. The suspense built for Melanie after the grand champion slap at the American Royal Herford Show. In Hale Area, Melanie stood alongside seven other queen candidates awaiting the announcement of a lifetime. “And the new 2019-20 National Hereford Queen is Melanie Fishel!” With great gratitude and poise, Melanie stood smiling cheek-to-cheek, feeling proud to begin her reign as the national queen. Her story is just beginning, and with new and exciting ideas for the Hereford family, Melanie is proud of her accomplishments and has her eyes focused on the upcoming year. Age: 21 Where are your royal roots? Kernersville, N.C. Where does a queen attend college? North Carolina State University

Who was your inspiration while running for national queen? “My Pawpaw Fishel was my inspiration to run for National Hereford Queen. He and my great-grandfather founded our family’s Hereford herd over 100 years ago. He is a true man of faith whose love for the land and passion for raising cattle inspires me every day to strive to be my best and follow my dreams. It is an honor to represent an industry that has played such a vital role in my life.” What are your goals as the new National Hereford Queen? “As National Hereford Queen, I hope to represent the heart and heritage of the Hereford breed. We all have our own Hereford story, and I look forward to hearing those stories from breeders and others involved in the industry while attending a plethora of shows, sales and other events across the country. I would like to be a role model to others in the industry just as previous National Hereford Queens were for me.” What was it like running for queen? “Running for National Hereford Queen was an incredible experience. It was a very busy couple of days between the written test, interview, Ladies of the Royal Sale, National Hereford Women meeting, American Royal Show and the American Hereford Association seminars, just to name a few! However, I enjoyed every second of it because I had the opportunity to visit Hereford.org


with fellow Hereford breeders from across the country while gaining new friendships from other state queens.” What is your biggest takeaway from your experience of running for National Hereford Queen? “This was actually my second year running for National Hereford Queen. My biggest takeaway was to never give up on your goals. There were a lot of amazing young women who ran both years, so I am very humbled to be chosen to represent the Hereford industry in this capacity.” Why did you run for National Hereford Queen? “I truly love communicating with people and sharing my story and about the Hereford breed and how it can improve their herd and lives. The Hereford breed is something that I believe in and will always stand behind. I wanted to serve as National Hereford Queen to advocate for the breeders and leaders in this industry who care about one another and value youth programs as well as research to improve the breed. I want to be the voice for the people and the industry which supports me. The Hereford industry has provided me with numerous opportunities to travel the country and has allowed me to develop valuable life skills, such as public speaking, networking and, most of all, leadership. “Service is also very important to me and is another reason why I wanted to become the National Hereford Queen. It is inspiring to see the Hereford family band together to support the National Hereford Queen service project every year at the Junior National Hereford Expo. I look forward to the opportunity to use my position to raise awareness and funds for well-deserving organizations.” What makes the Hereford industry special to you? “One major factor in the success of Herefords is the quality of people in the industry. In no other organization will you find the family atmosphere that the Herefords have. I have made numerous lifelong friends through Hereford.org

this industry from all corners of the country and even though we are competitive in the showring and in the contest rooms, I know that at the end of the day I can count on my Hereford family for anything.” What does the National Hereford Queen title mean to you? “When you are given a crown, you are given a microphone. Being a queen means you take that microphone, with grace and poise, you use it to advocate for what’s important to you. For me, that is the Hereford breed and the beef industry. It is about inspiring others to work hard, do their best, tell their Hereford story and be the kind of role model that others will admire.”

2019 Annual Meeting and American Royal Coverage

Tell Your Story by Emily Meinhardt, 2019 National Hereford Queen

he opportunity to represent the Hereford breed the past year has been an absolute honor. I want to give thanks to God for the opportunities He has given me along the way, and I also want to thank my family, the McKay family, the National Hereford Women and the American Hereford Association for the support and guidance given to me as I lived out one of my dreams. Attending six national shows and meeting breeders and youth from across the country has given me innumerable stories, experiences and memories. However, the biggest takeaway from my year as the National Hereford Queen is the importance of telling “your story.” Each one of us is brought to this breed from different experiences, family histories or unique opportunities. Last year when I was running for National Queen, I so badly wanted to be able to tell people I was a third generation Hereford breeder. The reality is … I’m not — and after a year of reflection, I realize I am okay with that. Now, I am definitely not looking for sympathy, but hear me out on my story, and this will all come full circle. Growing up, I was heavily involved in 4-H. While I was not associated with a state or national association, I recognized the importance of these programs in youth development. When I was a sophomore in high school, I suddenly lost my boyfriend, Seth McKay, to a tragic car accident. Seth and his family were, and still are, very passionate Hereford breeders. It was always a goal of Seth’s for me to be able to show Herefords. Grant, Linda and Bailey gave me the opportunity to show cattle from their herd at local and state shows and then at the junior nationals. They have supported my siblings and me as we have developed as showmen and as our knowledge of the breed and the industry has grown. While Seth may not have been able to see me show Herefords, it was his strong passion and dedication that led me to be involved with this breed. As I reflect on

68

| December 2019

my origins within the Hereford breed, that process reminds me there are many who have staked different roots in this amazing Association. While some have deep roots running strongly through many generations of family, others may have newer roots — like mine. Through my experience, I have found this difference is okay. When people used to ask me, “Don’t you know so and so?” I used to feel so goofy I did not, but I have found it is okay not to know everyone. We all have to start somewhere. I have been blessed over the past four years to be welcomed in with open arms to the best breed association in the world. During the past year as the National Hereford Queen, I have tried to embody the tremendous history and heritage of this breed and at the same time to welcome new junior members and opportunities along the way. So, in a time where telling your story in animal agriculture is so important — Tell. Your. Story.

2020 Hereford Herdsman of the Year During the 2020 National Western Stock Show (NWSS), Hereford exhibitors will submit their votes for the 2020 American Hereford Association (AHA) Herdsman of the Year through an online survey. A link for voting will be sent to the email address submitted with the original entries to the NWSS prior to arriving in Denver. Exhibitors are allowed one (1) vote per email and votes must be submitted by 11:59 p.m., Friday, Jan. 17. Exhibitors are highly encouraged to submit their votes early. The winner will be announced prior to the selection of the supreme champion Hereford, Saturday, Jan. 18. Serving on the 2020 Hereford Herdsman selection committee are Bobby Singleton, chairman; Matt Scasta, Buck Cattle Co.; Eric Eldridge, Colyer Herefords and Angus; and Jeremy Reno, Brumley Farms. The AHA thanks them for their time putting together a great group of candidates.

2020 Herdsman Candidates Alyssa Fee ____________________________________________________________________________________ Copeland and Sons Herefords LLC Holding the title of herdsman for more than five years at Copeland and Sons Herefords LLC, Nara Visa, N.M., Alyssa Fee has been instrumental in the operation’s success. Alyssa came on board at Copeland and Sons after graduating from Tennessee Technological University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in agriculture and a concentration in animal science. She has since managed and helped with numerous division winners and reserve and national champions at the NWSS, Fort Worth Stock Show (FWSS) and Junior National Hereford Expo (JNHE). Her skills in managing and fitting show cattle were made evident by the outfit being named premier breeder at both the NWSS and FWSS in 2015 and again in 2018. At the ranch, she is responsible for all artificial insemination (AI)

and embryo transplant (ET) setups, and calves out 100 heifers and 500 cows every spring. Growing up on her family’s small farm in Jackson, Tenn., Alyssa always had a passion for being with animals — particularly cattle, horses and dogs. She began showing Angus cattle early on and was mentored by Woolfolk Farms, Jackson, for many years. She ended up showing Herefords and hasn’t looked back since. Alyssa has also been involved in numerous professional organizations, and served as the state vice president of the Tennessee FFA Association and as the vice president of the Tennessee Junior Polled Hereford Association. She was named JNHE state junior of the year in 2013. Her drive and attention to detail exemplify the true makings of a herdsman, and the Copeland family is proud work alongside Alyssa on the ranch and in the show barn.

Robyn Kelley Samsel ___________________________________________________________________________ Barber Ranch Robyn was born on the end of a halter and has never looked back. She grew up on the show road while her parents, Ted and Ethel Kelley, owned and managed Rainbow Cattle Service. Robyn was tied across the aisle from a young man from Indiana one year at the junior nationals and several years later the same young man proposed to her at the junior nationals. Ryan and Robyn Samsel were married in 2007 and live in Cloverdale, Ind., where they own and operate Samsel Cattle Company. Robyn splits her time between Indiana and Texas. She has helped prep and show cattle for the family business, RCS, and has helped prep national champions for KLD Show Cattle, Rockin W Ranch, Coyote Ridge, Rocking Chair Ranch, Worrell Enterprises and numerous others. Hereford.org

She has continued at Barber Ranch, where she has been the showbarn herdsman for the past four years. During Robyn’s time at Barber Ranch, the operation has exhibited some impressive national champions, most notably two-time supreme champion bull, BR Belle Air 6011. “We have been very blessed to have Robyn work with our cattle and kids,” says Mary Barber, matriarch of Barber Ranch. “She has such a passion for both. We have appreciated how she cares for and loves each of them as her own. Plus, she always goes the extra mile to attend to every little detail.” Robyn is always searching for the newest techniques to make sure cattle are presented to their individual perfection. She works passionately with junior exhibitors, and her trademark advice is telling them to have fun right before they go into the show ring. Robyn enjoys being with people who love cattle as much as she does and is the quintessential Hereford herdsman.

Zach Wells ____________________________________________________________________________________ Hoffman Ranch While black may run in his blood, Zach Wells of Thedford, Neb., has broadened his horizon and has taken to the Hereford breed in a big way. Now working on his seventh year with Hoffman Ranch, this Texas native was a natural in the show barn, learning from his father, Tom, a past Angus and Chianina Herdsman of the Year. Starting with his first Angus Junior National in Tulsa, Okla., in 1999, Zach exhibited Angus and Red Angus heifers at Texas majors as well as at national events throughout his

junior career. In 2004 Zach’s bred-and-owned heifer was selected champion Angus female at the NWSS. An expansive program, Hoffman Ranch has exhibited many national champions with Zach’s assistance, including the national champion carload, grand champion polled bull and the polled premier exhibitor and breeder titles at the 2019 NWSS. A true cowman and workaholic, Zach may spend one day horseback checking pastures and the next processing calves in the feed yard, but his days always start and end in the show barn.

Jacob Wolfrey _________________________________________________________________________________ Grimmel Girls Show Cattle Jacob Wolfrey of Jarrettsville, Md., owns and operates Grimmel Girls Show Cattle with his wife, Michelle, newborn son, Andrew, and sister-in-law, Melissa Grimmel Schaake. He grew up raising and showing Angus cattle and went on to assist many large Angus and Hereford operations at nationals shows across North America before joining Grimmel Girls in 2010. Jacob has led the Grimmel Girls program to win many national titles including the NWSS, NAILE, JNHE, KILE and, most notably, the 2016 NWSS grand champion polled

female; along with several show heifer and show bull of the year awards. The Grimmel operation utilizes intensive ET and IVF programs in both their Maryland and Kansas locations, where they breed, raise and market genetics through online sales every fall and spring. Since their first online sale in March 2016, they have sold cattle and genetics to customers in more than 25 states and several Canadian provinces. The Grimmel Girls online sales are some of the highest averaging Hereford online heifer sales in the country. Jacob takes pride in raising and selling Hereford cattle that are not only successful in the show ring, but more importantly in production. He thoroughly enjoys working with their customers and providing a great and successful experience.

MILE HIGH NIGHT

Dear Hereford Breeders, Welcome to the 114th National Western Stock Show and the Mile High Night National Hereford Sale. The powerful showing of Herefords on the Hill and in the Yards has captured the attention of many cattlemen regardless of their breed loyalty. The Mile High Night Sale hosted on the Stadium Floor is a spectacle to behold. The Hereford breed returned the National Hereford Sale to the stadium floor in 2013 and the seven sales since have been the talk of the National Western. Last year’s sale was an epic event. The Mile High Night lots are uniquely special and offer some rare opportunities only found in a sale of this caliber. This headliner sale offers a superior selection of genetics from elite Hereford operations in North America — bulls, females and herd picks. We want to thank Pérez Cattle Co., Nara Visa, New Mexico, for donating the Lot 1 Foundation Female. Lot 1 is a powerful female that has the genetics to be a leading donor for many Hereford operations. She is a great female.  We look forward to seeing you in Denver. If you can’t make it to Denver the sale will be broadcast on LiveAuctions.TV. Feel free to contact us with any questions or for additional information. All the Best, American Hereford Association

NJW 79Z 22Z Mighty 49C ET — Sire of Lot 1

• NJHA is a great youth organization and we are honored to donate the 2020 HYFA Foundation “People’s Choice” bred heifer. • Visitors at the ranch and the thousands of viewers and voters online all found 8170 to be their favorite. • Visually she is an extremely high quality, moderate framed, big-bodied, wide-constructed female with cow power written all over her and offers a balanced set of EPDs. Her dam, 4006, has been one of our highest earning females at Pérez Cattle Company and always produces calves that rise to the top of our sales. Her full sister, 7009, was a member of the 2019 NWSS Champion Pen of Females and was a breathtaking 2-year old. We can’t say enough about the two foundation herd sires in 8170’s pedigree, NJW Hutton 109Z and NJW Mighty 49C, we wish we could have an entire ranch of their progeny, they are just that functional. • Bred AI to NJW 84B 4040 Fortified 238F and then pasture exposed to /S Peerless 88157. She is expected to calve early February. • Proceeds from this lot support the Hereford Youth Foundation of America and the Growing a Lasting Legacy campaign.

• One again 45C has come through with another fantastic flush and we are very excited to offer you full sibs in lots 4 and 5. We feel Standout can help any program get on the right track. We like how he is put together structurally. He has the volume and softness that promotes long lasting, easy fleshing and broody daughters. His 946 lb. weaning weight suggests he will sire male progeny that push down the scales and have the power to positively impact the profitability of any cowherd. Add in his balanced EPD profile, spotted face, deep eye set and it all starts to come together. His dam, 45C, is the former high selling live lot in this sale. His sire 63E, was the anchor in our 2018 Reserve Champion carload. This mating combines our very best cow families that are stacked with generations of great uddered, high producing females. Consistency and quality are bred into this herd bull prospect. Come to pen 1531 in the Yards and check out the flushmates to Standout and Stella.

• This heifer is so cowy in her makeup, yet possesses enough elegance for the show ring. She reminds us so much of her mother in the way she’s built. She is awesome in terms of structure – stout made with added muscle shape, bold sprung in her ribcage and big backed, while still being refined and classy in her appearance. She is level topped from the point of her shoulder to her tail head and has a neck that comes up high out of the top of her shoulder. She has national champions on both sides of her pedigree – her dam being a former national champion at KILE, as well as Horned Show Heifer of the Year and her sire has full sibs that have been champion in Kansas City and Denver. We feel that not only will she be a contender in the show ring, she will make an even better breeding piece when put into production. • Updated picture and video available after January 1 at GrimmelGirlsShowCattle.com

• We are thrilled to be a part of the Mile High Night and even more excited about our consignment to this prestigious event. This polled dark red female brings every aspect of soundness, flexibility and exceptional body dimension that you would anticipate from R Leader 6964, while coming off of a young Full Throttle daughter that brings additional style, presence and balance. With all that being said she sure doesn’t give up any power or muscle. She’s a great one from any angle that you view her, we think a lot of her and the confidence is high that she will do great things for her new owner. • Retaining the right to two (2) successful flushes at sellers expense and new buyers convenience.

21 Pick of BULL PEN Lot

FLUSHMATES PEDIGREE

• We think this is a tremendous opportunity to select a powerful future herd sire from our pen of bulls. These five flushmate brothers represent the kind of cattle we strive to produce. Sired by the wildly popular, NJW Endure 173D and out of Innisfail 4021, full sister to 4013, their pedigree is stacked with some of the best cow families in the breed. Their combination of performance, maternal and carcass EPDs is hard to come by in such phenotypically correct package. • 1832 – An extremely dense bodied bull who combines a loose, flexible build with rugged feature. With all this mass, hestill has the unique ability to present a great, balanced look. • 1833 – A sensibly sized bull that’s packed with muscle and dimentsion. Big goggles and big feet! • 1837 – The low birthweight, homozygous polled option that comes with a ton of performance and length of body. This kind of spread from birth to yearling will always keep you in business. • 1838 – A heavily pigmented future herd sire with an extremely soft body shape. This bull is impeccable in his feet, joints and angles. He sports some impressive scan data. • 1840 – This is a moderate, proportional, homozygous polled bull who has a very unique look from the side. • Videos available at www.innisfailfarm.com • #HEREFORDSTHATMARBLE #GENOTYPEWITHPHENOTYPE #CARCASSWITHSTYLE

PCR X51 Bentley 454B – Sire of Lot 26 Heifer Pen • We are excited to offer you the pick of our pen of heifers at the NWSS 2020. All three heifers are sired by PCR X51 Bentley 454B and out of our two favorite donor dams. This is the first time we have ever offered Bentley’s top heifer calves for sale. They make tremendous mamma cows and we have kept them all. It is our belief that any one of these daughters has the required pieces to be your next donor cow. In fact, the two that aren’t chosen will go back home to do just that. Be sure to check them out in the Yards prior to sale night. • We will retain the right to one future flush to be completed at the buyers convenience and our expense.

• We are offering the pick of four flushmates that are the result of mating K&B Bella 219Z with H FHF Advance 628 1ET. We feel the genetic potential of these females is extremely intriguing and feel all four heifers have big time donor potential. • We are partners with Hoffman Herefords on Bella 219Z and Jason states “Bella is a favorite of not only ours, but pretty much everyone that tours our cows. She is building major production. These 628 daughters have the two best cows we have ever found, Rita 21W and Bella 219Z, very close in their pedigree. Find their full brother, Tycoon, on the hill in our stalls. It’s a no miss pedigree with phenotype to back it up. These heifers are a no brainer if you’re looking to add value to your herd.” • Don’t miss out on the opportunity to get an exciting genetic package like this in your herd.

Put the genetics of 5044C, Sensation, a double shot of GO Excel L18 and Neon together and you get one this good and this full of cow power. Check her out.

Hereford Mom Diaries

| by Christy Couch Lee

Some Things Never Change Every year, it was the same. We would finish our Christmas Eve dinner with my parents and grandparents in our home at the farm. Then, as we ladies cleared the table and did the dishes, my brother, Willy, and the men headed outside for evening cattle chores. Without fail, the water tanks always needed to be filled that evening. Just a bit more time outside. And when the men returned to the house, the presents were miraculously under the tree. Santa sure was a sneaky fella! The wonder never failed. Some years, Willy’s most-treasured gifts were Breyer® horses, handcrafted wooden barns, or a new truck and trailer for those toy-cattle roundups. As he grew older, the gifts grew with him. Custom spurs. A custom saddle. The tools he needed for life on the ranch in Oklahoma. Now, as a parent, it’s pretty special to see our own family traditions in the making. Our Elf on the Shelf, Charlie, keeps careful watch over our youngest, Caroline (causing a few middle-of-the-night panic attacks when we realize he “forgot to move” before bedtime). Christmas cookies adorned with far too much icing and

too many sprinkles, because “Santa likes sprinkles.” And handmade, glitter-adorned ornaments on the tree, including photos of our pony, Little Man, who appeared under the Christmas tree in my parents’ living room when the boys were little — a Christmas gift from Uncle Willy and Aunt Tracie. Yes, really. A pony. In the living room. Under the Christmas tree. Just try to top that gift. Our resident cattleman, 11-yearold Nolan, has asked for nothing more than cattle-related gifts for years. When he was younger, he asked for photos of our bull calves, Ranger and Kemosabe. Last year, his list included half of the Sullivan Supply catalog. This year? All he requests is to finally get that indoor, heated washrack he’s wanted for years. I mean, really. How can Santa deny those gifts? (And does anyone have a loan for ol’ Santa? The older Nolan becomes, the more expensive that list becomes.) When a young person is raised

When you’re a cattle kid, Santa knows that trucks, trailers and ranching equipment will always be at the top of your list.

in the cattle industry, that love doesn’t end when the holidays roll around. It’s just another chance to incorporate that passion into another area of his or her life. Yes, the holidays are full of magic. And that magic includes caring for the animals entrusted to our care. Without a doubt, this year, as in every year, Nolan will head outside with his dad to do chores on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Because, regardless of the holiday, the cattle need to be fed. And the tanks may just need to be filled, as well. From our home to yours, may your Christmas celebration bring joy and memories to carry you through the years. Maybe a pony under the tree. And full water tanks, too. Christy Couch Lee is a freelance writer from Wellington, Ill. She can be reached at christy@ceeleecommunications.com.

Certain Christmas gifts live in the memories for a lifetime. And seeing a pony under the tree? Well, that’s one gift our boys will never forget. Hereford.org

From the Field In passing

Colton Patrick Decker, 19, Culter, Ohio, passed away Aug. 22. Colton was born July 24, 2000, to Pat and Loretta Decker in Marietta, Ohio. He was a 2019 graduate of Waterford High School and was enrolled to begin his college career Colton Decker at the Ohio State University this fall to study mechanical engineering. He passed away at his residence due to a tractor rollover caused by a tractor malfunction. Colton enjoyed tractor pulling, hunting, sporting clays, tinkering on equipment, riding four wheelers and anything with a diesel engine. He was a member of Porterfield Baptist Church and loved spending time with his family, friends, girlfriend and best friend — his dog, Skye. Colton was the best son, brother and friend any parent would be proud of. He was known for being a very persistent young man who could make a difference in anything he set out to do. He was employed by Decker Drilling and also farmed. He was a very dependable hard worker who would give the shirt off of his back to anyone in need. Colton is survived by his parents, Pat and Loretta; his sister, Caitlin; grandparents, Dean and Cheryl Decker; great grandma, Evelyn Decker; aunts and uncles, Tuss and Tom Nice, Sonny and Karen Place, Amy and Tim Lewis, and Kelly and Nick Tortorice; and several cousins. William T. “Bill” Bennett, 91, Connell, Wash., passed away Oct. 21. Born Nov. 28, 1927, at the family ranch outside of Winona, Wash., Bill was the first son of John W. and Marie Bennett. He was very active on the ranch at a very early age Bill Bennett along with his brothers Jack, Doug and Don. He began showing cattle at Spokane Livestock Show when he was 9 years old. Bill graduated from Winona High School in 1945 and then went on to attend Washington State University (WSU) to study animal science. He married his high school sweetheart, Norma Jean Marsh, Feb. 14, 1949. He, Norma and their four children — Tom, Pam, Gayle and Joe — sold their Shorthorn cows and Bill became the beef herdsman at WSU in 1957. After six years at WSU, Bill and his family moved to Connell where he began working for Harold Thompson with TT Herefords. Harold sold out to Bill and Norma in 1969 and the Bennett family started BB Cattle Co. Bill was an avid cattleman and was involved in multiple industry organizations. He served as a director on the American Hereford Association Board of Directors from 1985 to 1991. Bill judged and sold cattle all over the world. BB Cattle Co. exhibited at the National Western Stock Show from 1975 to 1996. They had the champion carload in 1986 and numerous reserves. Among their showing success, they exhibited the champion Hereford bull in 1988. That same year, Bill was honored by the Beef Improvement Federation as the Seedstock Producer of the Year. In 2017, he was inducted into the MidColumbia Ag Hall of Fame with the Pioneer Award.

| December 2019

Bill passed his love for cattle down through multiple generations, and one of his favorite past times was sitting ringside watching his grandchildren and great-grandchildren show cattle. He is survived by his wife, Norma; his children Tom (Peggy) Bennett, Pam (Don) Pierson, Gayle (Ken) Smith, Joe (Merrilie) Bennett; his brothers Doug (Gladys) Bennett, Don (Phyllis) Bennett and sister-in-law Donna Bennett; 12 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and many other “grandchildren,” as he was considered a grandpa to so many. Donna Dyer, 87, Pleasantville, Iowa, passed away Oct. 28. Those left to cherish Donna’s memory include her husband, Ralph; two sons, Monty (Shirley) Dyer and Timothy (Rhonda) Dyer; one brother, Graham (Roxanne) Donna Dyer Fee; one sister, Glenna (William) Clarke; five grandchildren, Jason (Kristin) Dyer, Amanda (Luke) Fitzpatrick, Tracy (Brandon) Townsend, Rehannon Dyer, and Taylor Dyer; and four great-grandchildren, Jensen, Kaydin, Beka and Treece. John Zilverberg, 106, Highmore, S.D., passed away Oct. 29. John was born Aug. 2, 1913, the second of five children to Jake and Lutske Zilverberg, emigrant parents from the Netherlands. In 1928, his family moved to Hyde County John Zilverberg and he began working on a ranch north of Holabrid, S.D., which included breaking broncs his father brought home to drive and ride. During the Great Depression, John hitchhiked to Iowa and handpicked corn for three cents a bushel. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor, he enlisted in the U.S. Marines where he spent most of the next four years. During that time, he participated in the initial amphibious assault on Bougainville. He later contracted malaria and spent time in numerous hospitals in Hawaii and Klamath Falls, Ore. He received a 30-day furlough, during which he married Dorothy Boehmer in South Dakota. After the war ended, John was discharged and returned with his wife and four children to the ranch he and his brother, David, shared for a couple of years. John bought his first registered Hereford heifers in 1940, which was the beginning of Bar JZ Ranches. He hosted his first production sale in 1950. In 1970, he became one of the founding 100 members of the North American Limousin Foundation. In 1995, John was inducted into the American Polled Hereford Association Hall of Fame for his contributions to the breed. John retired at 87 years old and sold the ranch to his sons. Bar JZ Ranches continues John’s legacy in the beef cattle industry. Outside of livestock, John was an avid bowler and was inducted into the South Dakota Bowling Hall of Fame in 2012. His wife, Dorothy, passed away in December 2008 after 63 years of marriage, and John remained in their home until he was 104 years old. Hereford.org


John is survived by his children, Marci (Mike) Wiedebush, Donald (Peggy) Zilverberg, Karen (Ray) Geditz, and Gary (April) Zilverberg; 13 grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; and sister, Janette (William) Kubat Patterson.

Shadow Ridge donates heifer at Minnesota Beef Expo At the 2019 Minnesota Beef Expo, Mittag’s Shadow Ridge Ranch, owned by Randy and Liz Mittag of River Falls, Wis., was pleased to donate a Hereford heifer to a deserving showman. Addison Mitchell of Waterville, Minn., was the recipient of Shadow Ridge Raleigh, a May 1 heifer. Shadow Ridge Ranch was established in 1996 on a small hobby farm outside of River Falls. Registered polled Herefords were chosen for their docile temperament, mothering ability and lack of horns. Through the use of artificial insemination and quality herd sires, cattle are bred to have sound legs and feet, good udders, excellent mothering ability and quality carcasses with large rib eye and well-marbled meat. In 2012, Liz met Randy Mittag and they joined forces. Moving south of River Falls enabled them to establish management intensive grazing on a larger scale, allowing them to calve 25 to 30 cows. They enjoy sharing their land and animals through farm tours and family visits. They raise calves for breeding animals, and steers are finished on corn and sold privately. The Mittags have also begun providing grassfed beef for a local food co-op. Liz and Randy are honored to provide a heifer to a young person, and they hope to share their experience and love of Hereford cattle. Below is a letter written by Raleigh to her new owner, Addison. Dear Addison, I am Raleigh. I will be your Show Heifer. You and I can do very well in showing. I am very curious. I am also very smart and learn quickly. All you need to do is show me what you need me to do a few times. I will try my best to understand and do what you want me to do. I am young, so please be patient with me. Sometimes I don’t understand and I get confused and do things wrong. Please be patient, but firm. If you are consistent, I will soon understand. I am a quick learner and like to be talked to. You are my new owner/mom. I will look to you for guidance. Only a short while ago, I was with my cow mom and she took the best care of me. If you help me know what to do, I will try my hardest. Please be patient and calm and I will stay patient and calm. I will need you to provide plenty of fresh clean water. I love to eat grass. Hay is good, too! Grass hay is the best. Since I will be shown, a nice show ration is good every day. I am still growing. Please don’t feed me too much because I don’t want to get fat! I will need some minerals to help my bones and body work and grow. A white salt block is fun for me to lick. This feed will help me stay healthy and grow big and strong so I can have a nice calf. My mom was a very good mother and I will be, too! Please talk to me calmly and quietly. I like being brushed. After practice for showing, I like to be rubbed where the halter goes. Sometimes it gets too tight and it hurts. Sometimes I jump and get scared. I need you to be calm and let me know I’m safe with you. I have never been off my farm before. This is all new and scary. Let me know you will protect me and help me understand and I will love you and do my very best! If you have trouble or need any help, please call my other human mom, Liz. She knows and understands me. She can help you so we can be the best of friends and an awesome show team. Your new friend, Raleigh Hereford.org
